PATCH OF BLUE
WHO WE ARE
The Province of Nova Scotia and the Nova Scotia Government and General Employees Union (NSGEU) jointly established the Nova Scotia Public Service Long Term Disability Plan Trust Fund (the Fund) in 1985 to provide long-term disability benefits to the Province's public sector employees. The Nova Scotia Public Service Long Term Disability Plan (the Plan) is managed and administered by a Board of Trustees appointed by the two Plan Sponsors. The Plan is funded equally by employer and employee contributions.
Currently, 16 employers participate in the Plan, covering approximately 14,200 Plan members.
Our shared mission is to administer the Nova Scotia Public Service Long Term Disability Plan Trust Fund to ensure sustainable and affordable funding for negotiated long-term disability benefits and return to work support.
We commit to provide a competitive and sustainable LTD Plan. We will provide this in a fair and compassionate manner, considering the diversity of needs.
We commit to provide full accountability, transparency, and the responsible use of Trust Fund resources.
We commit to provide targeted communication practices to keep Plan members, employers, and Plan Sponsors informed of matters relating to the LTD Plan.
