Reminder: PSSap insurance salaries
PSSap insurance salaries should be reported every pay cycle in your PSSap SAFF file through your clearing house. Emails to notify CSC of an update to a member’s insurance salary should only be sent for retrospective changes. Any email notification will be overridden by insurance salary information in your SAFF data as soon as a pay file has been applied to PSSap member accounts.

Fast-tracking for terminally ill members
For PSS and CSS members, there’s no need to obtain a report from an independent medical specialist. Instead, the member’s treating specialist and general practitioner should provide reports that comment on the Help Sheet found within the PSS and CSS Invalidity Notes. It’s important they address life expectancy within their reports as we may be able to offer PSS members a lump sum option. We may also be able to make any lump sum paid to the CSS or PSS members tax free.
For PSSap members, we require two medical reports preferably from a specialist and a general practitioner that can comment on the member’s condition, symptoms, work capacity and life expectancy. If a member has lifePLUS insurance they may wish to claim a terminal illness benefit through the insurer. We will discuss this with the member and provide them with the forms for an insurance claim. The invalidity retirement certificate will generally be issued after the insurer has made their decision on any insurance claim.
