Retirement health coverage and you

Support your health and peace of mind. Learn about the coverage options available to you as a retired member of BC's Teachers' Pension Plan.

Waiving coverage

If you do not wish to enrol in the extended health care and/or dental plans, indicate this when applying for your pension online or on the Application for voluntary extended health care and dental benefits form. If you do not apply online or return this application form to us within 60 days of your pension effective date, we will assume you do not want coverage.
