Improvements to the PBC health benefits plan

March 05, 2023

Dear SFU Retirees, 

On behalf of the Retirees Association (SFURA) and SFU's Human Resources Department (HR), I am delighted to announce that an initiative to improve the Pacific Blue Cross (PBC) health benefits plan, for all retirees who are on that plan, has come to a successful conclusion, effective April 1, 2023. 

SFURA would like to thank our volunteer Benefits Committee along with Steve An, SFU HR Pension & Benefits Consultant, for all their collaborative work to find the best balance between desired improvements and costs. 

SFURA would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to Yabome Gilpin-Jackson, SFU VP People Equity and Inclusion, and Chris Hatty, SFU Executive Director Human Resources and Labour Relations, for their support to ensure these improvements came to fruition.

Frances Atkinson,
SFURA President
