Life Claims (CAR, GOIP, IRM, MPRLIP, OGTI, RTIP, SIB)
SISIP Financial Head Office is notified of Canadian Armed Forces serving member casualties through official channels. Potential claimants or unit personnel, however, usually communicate the notification of a loss of a dependent child or spouse. Insured members should advise their dependents to contact Base or Unit authorities, their SISIP Financial Advisor, as quickly as possible so claims can be initiated without delay. When notified of a loss, SISIP Financial advises Manulife who mails the necessary claim forms and instructions for the submission of claims to the beneficiary(ies) on record.
Claim forms may also be obtained from SISIP Financial Advisors or from Manulife. The following, are documents normally required when filing a death claim:
- A SISIP Attending Physician's Statement (APS) Form;
- A Claimant's Statement Regarding Death;
- A death certificate,
And if applicable:
- The marriage certificate of the beneficiary(ies), and
- A Long Form birth certificate of any dependent children.
Upon the death of an insured member, the surviving insured spouse can continue their coverage as he/she becomes the deemed member.
Long Term Disability Claims (LTD)
Insured members filing for LTD benefits must complete the LTD Claim Package. A portion of this form is to be completed by the attending physician.
As of December 1, 1999 when a member is released medically, 3a, 3b, the DCSA (Director of Casualty Support and Administration) notifies us of your medical release. We will verify and inform Manulife claim office of your eligibility. If eligible, a claim form and APS (Attending Physician's Statement) will be sent to you by Manulife for your completion. Once it is received by Manulife and you have been accepted to the LTD program, a rehabilitation counsellor (if applicable) will contact you.
A member released other than for medical reasons (3a, or 3b) thinking they may qualify as "totally disabled", may file a LTD/Res LTD claim with SISIP Financial prior to being released from the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) to expedite the gathering of supporting evidence and the processing of the claim. In all cases, SISIP Financial or the Insurer, Manulife, must receive a claim no later the 120 days after the CAF member's date of release for adjudication. If you qualify you may receive the LTD benefits up to age 65. Please note that you are responsible to submit your claim to SISIP.
Note: the member does not need to be "medically released" to file a claim. A CAF member may initiate a claim if he/she feels that he/she may be eligible
