Unit 2 Dental Plan- Enrollment and Deductions

Brad WalchukUncategorized

The one-time $170 CUPE 3906 single dental coverage deduction is tentatively scheduled for October 25, 2019.
Unless you have submitted the proper opt-out form and documentation prior to the October 1st deadline, you will be automatically enrolled in CUPE 3906 Unit 2 single dental coverage.  The coverage is retroactive to September 1st, 2019, and will be available to you until August 31, 2020, regardless of your employment status at McMaster.
For more information on the plan, including the policy information you need to take to the dentist and for a link to the coverage booklet, please visit our website: https://cupe3906.org/sessionals-unit-2/unit-2-dental-coverage/
Any eligible outstanding claims form September and/or October 2019 will be paid out after the deduction and the information upload.  The earliest day eligible claims will be paid out will likely be November 6, 2019.
The deduction is a one-time deduction (however you will see a record of the deduction in the “year to date” section of your pay statement until the end of the 2019 calendar year).
If you have opted out of our coverage, you shouldn’t see the $170 “CUPE Dental” deduction on your October 25th pay statement.  If you do, please let us know at administrator@cupe3906.org.
If you have enrolled in family dental coverage, you will have the family dental deduction made from your bank account (not your pay statement) on November 1st and December 1st, 2019.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.  We hope you find the benefit useful and worthwhile overall.
In solidarity,
Your CUPE 3906 Executive
