The Joint Insurance Committee (JIC) consists of provincially-elected OPSEU representatives and members of the College Council. Sun Life representatives also attend.
The JIC meets on a monthly basis with the primary responsibility of reviewing decisions made by the insurance carrier (Sun Life) on claim denials (Extended Health, Dental, Long Term Disability, and Life Insurance). If your claim has been denied, it may have been done incorrectly.
Your Local 558 officers can answer your questions about various aspects of our insurance plan and advise you on matters—such as appealing denials of your claims for medical, dental or other benefits or applying for Long Term Disability (LTD).
If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to a member of the Local Executive Committee.
Members of the JIC are:
