DCS employees and their spouses have access to critical illness insurance.
When a critical illness strikes, your financial stability is the last thing you need to worry about. Critical illness insurance provides a tax-free, lump-sum cash payment if you or your spouse is diagnosed with a critical illness, such as cancer, stroke or organ failure.
You can use this money any way you wish: to help with medical expenses, car payments, groceries, nursing or child care expenses, rehabilitation, modifications to your home or vehicle or anything else you need.
Your cost depends on the level of coverage you choose and your age, gender and smoker status. You pay the full cost of coverage through payroll deductions.
You can elect or change your critical illness insurance at any time during the year.
Our Critical Illness Insurance partner is SSQ through the AECOM Benefits Service Centre.
