PROCEDURE: Reinstatement of Refund, Purchasing or Obtaining Credit for Other Service as Teaching Service
 
Teachers wishing to reinstate a refund or purchase or obtain credit for other service as teaching service should request, in writing from the Saskatchewan Teachers' Superannuation Commission (STSC) an estimate of the amount required to purchase such service. Please indicate whether the purchaes will be made through a personal cheque or a transfer from a RRSP. If a purchase is made with the intention of transferring that service to another pension plan, a teacher should request an estimate of the amount available to transfer under the terms of the paricular reciprocal transfer agreement. In many cases, the importing pension plan will require additional funds from the teacher before full service is credited. Should the teacher decide to proceed:
1. A cheque or money order for the required amount made payable to the Saskatchewan Teachers Superannuation Fund should be sent to the STSC, or
2. Form T2033E available from the STSC may be used to transfer funds from your RRSP.
When an estimate is being requested, the anticipated date of payment and the following documentation should accompany the request:
1. Maternity, Paternity, Adoption or Parenting Adsence
* A letter from the employer stating that the leave was granted and the first and last dates of the leave, or
* A signed affidavit available from the STSC and a copy of the birth certificate of the child cared for at that time.
2. Deferred Salary Leave
* A written agreement must be made between the teacher and the board. The Commission will require a copy of the agreement to be held on the teacher's file.
* A teacher may defer a maximum of 33.33% of their gross salary in 1 year.
* The leave of absence must not be less than 6 consecutive months (teachers may count July and August) unless it is for full-time attendance at a designated educational institution, in which case the leave of absence must not be less than 3 consecutive months.
* The leave of absence must begin no later than 6 years after the date on which the salary deferral begins.
* The teacher must return to work after the leave for a period that is not less than the length of the leave.
* The teacher is afforded an option to either have or not have superannuation contributions deducted from the remuneration paid to him/her by the school board during the leave.
The teacher may choose to purchase the period of the leave in a lump sum plus interest from the Commission at a later date. If so, the purchase would be subject to CRA approval based on available RRSP room. If the teacher has made contributions to another registered pension plan, that purchase is permitted only if that pension plan transfers the funds under a portability agreement. No interest is charged if payment is received within 1 year of the end of the deferred saslry leave.
Other purchase restrictions apply to pre-1992 service.
3. Sabbatical Leave
* A letter from the employer verifying that sabbatical leave at 50% or more of salary was granted specifying the first and last dates of the leave and stating that no contributions to the Saskatchewan Teachers Superannuation Plan (STSP) were made during this time.
NOTE:
Teachers may contribute to the STSP by regular payroll deduction throughout the board funded leave provided they are receiving at least 50% of their previous year's salary.
4. Attendance at University
* An official statement from the Registrar's Office of the university confirming first and last days of attendance at the university and the number of classes attended during each semester, or a transcript of marks.
5. Outside Service and Private School Service
* Documentation from the places taught verifying the type of school, grades taught, location of school, length of teaching service, employment type (full-time/part-time) and certificate held. Where official statements from school authorities are not available, affidavits may be used to establish the necessary evidence.
   
6. Compassionate Leave
* A letter from the employer stating that the leave was granted and the fist and last dates of the leave; or
* A signed affidavit from the STSC and a letter from a medical practioner stating the illness.
