LTDI (Government of Alberta)
After an employee of the Government of Alberta has been off on general illness for a period of eighty (80) days, they could be found eligible for LTD benefits by the Plan Adjudicator (Great West Life). LTD benefits are 70 per cent of your salary at the start of general illness (see Article 33A of the Master Agreement).
We would strongly recommend to allow time for processing, review and decision, that an application for LTD benefits be made in a timely fashion (as a guide approximately 30 days after being on general illness leave).
The application form (Employee’s Statement) and the Notice of Appeal (in the event the application is denied or LTD benefits are discontinued) are now electronically available at the links below.
