    New group benefit plan rates posted to HR website

    Human Resources has posted the new rates for Queen’s group benefit program, which come into effect on July 1, 2015.

    The updated rates were established after an annual rate review with Great-West Life, the university’s group benefit provider.

    Among the rate changes is an 8.6 per cent increase to the premiums for the supplementary medical plan, which are paid entirely by the employer for active employees and 70 per cent paid by the university for retirees.

    Premium rates for the Long-Term Disability (LTD) plan, which are entirely paid by the employee, will increase 10 per cent this year. This increase comes after no increase in LTD premiums last year.

    Individual LTD premiums depend on salary level. To find out how the rate increase will affect you, or for more information, please contact Human Resources at 613-533-2070 or see the detailed rates on the Human Resources website.
