The Public Education Benefits Trust (PEBT) offers a comprehensive benefits package to participating eligible employees as negotiated between School Districts and Local unions. The benefits provided through the PEBT Benefits Program are a major part of your total compensation. The program includes a government funded Core Long Term Disability (LTD) plan for Bill-7 School Districts in British Columbia, a Joint Early Intervention Service (JEIS) for disabled employees, as well as extended health, dental, life, and if applicable at your School District, accidental death & dismemberment insurance and/or additional disability insurance to help maintain your family’s health and financial security.
What is the JEIS program? / PEBT – What is JEIS
The JEIS program works with members who are ill or injured at the very beginning (by the 6th day) of their absences from work.
When members first become ill or injured, a Health Care Management Specialist (HCMS) from Desjardins Financial Security contacts them. If necessary, the HCMS follows them through their treatment and recovery and helps them return to work during the 120-day qualifying period for Core LTD benefits.
