Notice of Illness or Injury

If you stop working as a result of an Illness or injury and you expect to be off work for an extended period of time, you or your Employer must notify HEB Manitoba. Your Employer is required to submit a Notice of Absence form to HEB Manitoba within 60 days from the date your injury/Illness began.

For a Recurrent claim, HEB Manitoba must receive the Notice of Absence form from your Employer within 30 days of the start of the injury or Illness.

The D&R application process is quite detailed, and it may take considerable time to complete all necessary documentation. Therefore, it is important that the application process begin as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary delays, and to ensure that any D&R Benefits you may be eligible to receive commence as soon as reasonably possible under the D&R Plan.

Once HEB Manitoba receives the Notice of Absence form, HEB Manitoba confirms that you are eligible to apply for D&R Benefits by verifying that you are a member of the D&R Plan and that premiums have been paid.

At this point, the application process will begin.
