Current Issues


Insurance Rebate information:

The life insurance rebates that some JACFA members are receiving are based on the following:

- You were employed at the College in 2014 (reference year for decision);

--- The amount is pro-rated if you were not fully employed in 2014 (new contract in August, retired in July, on leave, illness, etc.).

- You paid for life insurance in 2014;

---Basic insurance (obligatory) makes up one part of the rebate, increasing levels of optional life insurance would give more.

JACFA does not know if a member has basic or optional coverage (and how much extra they may pay for).  JACFA does not know your status during the year (full time, part time, on leave, ill, etc.)¹.  This is why the amounts are different from one teacher to another.

This rebate only applies to life insurance, not disability or dental insurance.  The amount is non-taxable as it is a return of your premiums, money which has already been taxed (it is from your after-tax take-home amount).

Insurance coverage is a personal decision, and again, we do not know what you may have chosen or need as options. 

We hope that this information clarifies the life insurance rebates for you.

¹ - While JACFA is informed of changes in status, we do not routinely keep this information accessible.

For further questions please contact the JACFA office.
