CTTAM Retired Members Insurance Plan
CTTAM has partnered with the Alberta Retired Teachers’ Association to offer retired CTTAM members a retiree benefits plan. To participate in the ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan, you must be a retired member of CTTAM age 55 or older, a permanent resident of Canada and are enrolled in all provincial or territorial health care plans for which you are eligible.
You are automatically eligible to enroll in an Extended Health Plan with emergency travel (Total or Ultimate Health plans) if ARTA receives your application within 60 days of termination from an employer-sponsored group benefits plan (either as an employee or eligible dependent). After 60 days, applications require medical evidence of insurability and you may be denied coverage. Your ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan coverage starts the day after you current coverage terminates. Please note that CTTAM retired members must purchase an ARTA Associate membership to participate in the retired member benefit plans. If you have additional questions about open enrollment, ARTA, or health plans being offered to CTTAM retired members, contact Jennifer Hope at email@example.com. An Associate ARTA membership is required.
