Group Benefits Program
COVID-19 Update about your Employee Benefits
At Certika Financial Group we wanted to take this time to reach out to our employee benefits clients and let you know you do have options available to you under your programs during these uncertain times. We want to assure you that under your program coverage may continue to be retained even if you are on temporary layoff.
Although many companies have been put in a position where they must temporarily lay off some employees, we will still allow the continuation of coverage, but premiums must be kept up to date. So far, many employers are committing to cover employee costs for the next few months to protect their most important asset, their employees and their immediate families. However, should employers decide to lay off employees and suspend coverage, all those employees can be added back to the plan once the pandemic is over without medical requirements.
While we cannot solve the current pandemic, we want you to know Certika is here to support you in any way we can. We want to assure you that our doors in Perth, Smiths Falls and Ottawa will remain open to help our valued clients.
Wishing you all health, both physically and mentally in these stressful times.
