Basic Life Insurance


If you are a management employee and retire with an immediate pension, with at least two years of service with NAV CANADA:

Each Month ​
​Retirees pay... ​NAV CANADA pays...
$0.14 per $1,000 of coverage $0.018 per $1,000 of coverage
After you reach age 65, NAV CANADA will pay 100% of the premium for the first $5,000 of coverage; you pay for any remaining coverage.
 
Premiums are subject to provincial tax: for Ontario (8%), Quebec (9%) and Manitoba (8%).
  
Life insurance premiums and provincial tax paid by NAV CANADA constitute a taxable benefit under the Income Tax Act. This amount is added to your T4A and Relevé 2, for retirees. Applicable income tax is deducted from your pension.
If you leave NAV CANADA and defer your pension:
You may want to maintain your Basic Life Insurance coverage even though you are not taking your pension immediately after you leave NAV CANADA. If you defer your pension and wish to maintain your coverage, you must send a written request to your Pension Advisor within 30 days of your employment end date. You must also send a cheque for 12 months’ premiums at the appropriate rate from the following table. The rate is based on your age on the thirtieth day following your termination date.
