RTO/ERO MEMBERSHIP REPORT Greetings to all District 3 members and a special welcome to all new colleagues who have joined our ranks during the past few months. We have moved away up to 1,130 members! We look forward to a new and exciting year as we celebrate Canada’s 150th anniversary. We welcome all newcomers to our first meeting on October 3rd at the Legion Hall. You will be contacted a week before to remind you. We hope you enjoyed our forecasted “hot, dry summer” which turned out to be a “cool, rainy summer”; however, we look forward to Algoma’s “Autumn Colourama” which is always so superb. Enrolment packages are available at all meetings. Moyra O’Pallie Membership / Recruitment

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.
