Benefits after a plan member passes away – if an employee dies while his/her dependents are insured for healthcare and dentalcare benefits under this policy, their healthcare and dental care coverage will continue to the earlier of:
1. the date they cease to qualify as insurable dependents;or
2. 2 years after the employee’s death.
If the surviving spouse re-marries or obtains similar coverage elsewhere within the 24-month period described above, Canada Life must be notified in writing immediately, as coverage will need to be terminated.
