Amendment to the Teachers' Superannuation and Disability and Benefits Act:
Through collective bargaining between Saskatchewan teachers and the Government of Saskatchewan, The Teachers Superannuation and Disability Benefits Act (the Act) was amended to allow teachers with less than 20 days of contributory service eligible to receive a refund of their contributions with interest. Previously legislation locked-in these contributions and were only payable as a death benefit. The amendment to the Act was effective June 30, 2016. If you or someone you know may qualify for a refund please contact the Saskatchewan Teachers Superannuation Commission for further information.
