Retiree Fund Information
As a result of a 2016 Court Order, USSC made a one-time contribution of $2.7 million to establish a Retiree Fund. The Retiree Fund extends the benefits currently available under the Transition Fund (established by the Province) to USSC retirees and their eligible beneficiaries who are resident in Canada but who reside outside of Ontario. The Retiree Fund also provides a one-time reimbursement of up to $100.00 to USSC retirees and their eligible beneficiaries for health services or supplies which were purchased after September 12, 2016 and which were not covered by the Transition Fund but would have been covered under the suspended USSC OPEB plan.
The Transition Fund, established by the Province, will be winding down effective March 31, 2017. As a result, starting April 1, 2017, the same prescription drugs, emergency dental and other benefits currently available through the Transition Fund will be available through the Retiree Fund.
