Information:  The Passing of a Member The passing of a family member is a difficult time for all concerned.  The best advice for a prospective Estate Executor is to consult with, and accept the advice of, a qualified lawyer. Provincial laws are subject to change and may contain subtle phrasing beyond the knowledge of the average person. It is important that all members of RTO/ERO be aware of the following, in the event that they need to provide assistance to the surviving family. If the survivors themselves are not full members of RTO/ERO, they may not be aware that they may continue their coverage within the RTO/ERO Health Plans. If their existing policy indicates Couple or Family coverage, then the survivors could be eligible for Associate Membership, and therefore continued RTO/ERO Health Plan Coverage. This seamless transfer of membership would enable them to continue their existing coverage without the need for evidence of medical insurability.  This request should be made within sixty days of the passing of the member. In order for survivors to continue with RTO/ERO Health Plan Benefits, the Executor needs to contact our Plan Administrator, Johnson Inc 1- 877-406-9007 and request that a document entitled “Continuation of Benefits Form” be mailed to him/her. This form will require the name of the new Associate Member. For this membership, a single fee is paid once a year in December (prorated during applications at any other time of the year). This form will also require the choice of the Health Plan(s) desired for continuation of coverage.  Premiums are paid monthly. This form along with a death certificate would then be mailed as per the instructions on the form. If further information would be of assistance, then contact the RTO/ERO office at 1-800-361-9888 or 1-416-962-9463. You may also contact our website at www.rto-ero.org.
Goodwill Committee  ---  Submitted by Bernice Whalen Since our March newsletter birthday greetings and warm wishes to those 80+ have been sent out to one hundred nineteen of our  members . It is heartwarming to know that so many of our people are celebrating golden years of retirement! Since spring, fifteen of our members have received get well cards and a box of goodies delivered on behalf of District 3 . I truly hope I haven’t missed connecting with people who are ill or having a difficult time. The phone convenors have been such great team mates as they are often the first to perceive that someone is having a difficult time. This is where I need each one of you on my committee in order to keep me well informed. A donation from District 3 was made to the RTO/ERO foundation in sympathy for the loss of RTO-ERO members William Struk, Mary Balford, Larry Jacklin, Joyce MacDonald, Lily Leistner, Allan Rogers, John (Jack) Cameletti, Gary Barone, Valerie Scott, Fred Eddy, Georges Albert. Donations were also made acknowledging Waltrault (Vi) Pigeon’s spouse and Carolyn Fremlin’s daughter as well as Carol McFarlane’s mother. Cards were sent to the Beaudette and Potvin family on the loss of a sister and sister-in-law. Our deepest sympathy goes out to all those who have lost loved ones. Your colleagues want you to know we care. This Goodwill Committee needs each one of you as committee members. We don’t want to miss anyone, so if you know someone to whom we should be sending a card or needs best wishes, please call or e-mail. We cannot do an adequate job without participation from all of you!  Yes, each one of you are part of this Goodwill team. Together we can make a difference and brighten many of  our colleagues’ days!
