Retroactive Disability Payments

If you receive disability payments currently or have received disability payments in the past, you may be entitled to a retroactive benefit payment adjustment from the Sunlife or Industrial Alliance disability plan. 

New collective agreements mean retroactive salary increases for many members. This entitles some members to retroactive increase in disability pay.

This retroactive payment will be automatically calculated and you do not need to apply.


The retroactive payment project is extensive and will run to the end of the year. If you have not received a retroactive payment that you believe you are entitled to, it may be issued later this year.  

Should you not have received an expected adjustment by January 2020, please reach out to your union representative
