Exciting News for the D&R Plan!

Effective January 1, 2019 HEB Manitoba extended the Disability and Rehabilitation (D&R) Plan to include all part-time employees. They no longer have to work a minimum of 15 hours per week to be eligible for coverage.

Part-time employees are automatically eligible to enrol in the D&R Plan unless they:

  • Previously opted out of the Plan,
  • Were denied coverage due to Evidence of Insurability,
  • Have not completed the required Evidence of Insurability,
  • Are part of an employee group that doesn’t participate in the Plan,
  • Are age 64 and eight months or older, or
  • Work on a casual basis.

The D&R Plan replaces a portion of an employee's income if they are unable to work because they have been deemed Totally Disabled as defined by the Plan. Participation in the D&R Plan is mandatory and a condition of employment for all eligible employees.

All part-time employees will receive an enrolment form from HEB Manitoba or their employer. This form must be completed, signed and returned to HEB Manitoba by the date indicated. For more information about the Plan, please watch the following video, review the website or read the Understanding Your Disability & Rehabilitation Benefits brochure, effective January 1, 2019.
