HFG January 2022 Newsletter
Coping with Change

The pandemic upended what was, for many of us, years of routine and consistency. Commuting, schooling, social lives, wellness routines and just about everything in between have been impacted. As the pandemic continues in 2022, there’s lots more change to come.

Control or acceptance coping is a proactive way to deal with change. It involves taking practical steps to manage change, including:
  • Making to-do lists and action plans
  • Talking things through rationally with yourself and others
  • Getting organized
  • Finding support
  • Seeing change as an opportunity – not a threat

Personal Benefits - Coverage for Retiring Chambers Plan Employees
Health and Dental Coverage for Retiring Employees 

For many people, retiring means leaving their health and dental coverage behind. While provincial plans cover some health care expenses, many day-to-day and emergency expenses will now be your responsibility. Retiree Plan for Employees allows employees aged 50 and over to easily transition their group plan coverage to an individual health and dental plan.

Your employees can access information and apply through the Personal Benefits link under their www.my-benefits.ca employee access.
