Members will be able to enroll in optional additional coverage plans – Enhanced, Elite, and Super Elite – which include options for dental and vision coverage, in addition to increased top-up coverage for other components included in the Standard Plan.
The ORWP will also provide two Standard Plan enhancement options for Life and AD&D Insurance, and one enhancement option for Critical Illness Insurance for Members looking for additional coverage at their own expense.
REALTORS® have the option to enroll their family members and dependants in the ORWP. As with the Members’ coverage, family members will not require any questionnaires or medical tests to enroll in the Program.
OREA Members will have the option to add optional Life Insurance and optional AD&D Insurance (AD&D) for their family members and dependants. In addition, eligible OREA Members will also have the option to enhance their dependants’ coverage for healthcare, dental care, and Travel Insurance.
OREA Members who retire after January 1, 2024, will have the opportunity to extend their ORWP coverage through a variety of optional Retirement Plans. The ORWP will offer retiring Members the option of a Life Insurance and Accidental Death & Dismemberment Insurance (AD&D) Plan. Members interested in more comprehensive coverage can enroll in the optional Retiree Enhanced Plan or Retiree Elite Plan that offer coverage for health, drugs, dental, vision, virtual care, and mental health.
Grandfathered Member Board Retirement Programs
Members currently enrolled in a Retirement Life Insurance Program through the Windsor-Essex County Association of REALTORS®, Durham Region Association of REALTORS®, and Toronto Regional Real Estate Board will have their coverage grandfathered into the ORWP, effective January 1, 2024.
Any Broker of Record may elect to offer the ORWP to their brokerage staff. If they do so, all eligible staff must enroll in the core Standard Plan.
Permanent staff members working a minimum of 20 hours per week are eligible for the ORWP. They would pay the same rate as Members for the Standard Plan, at $659.88 per year. Staff would have the same options as Members to enhance their plan, adding coverage for things like dental and vision, at the same rate as Members. They can also add dependents on the same terms as Members.
The Broker of Record will receive a bill on a monthly basis and be responsible for the payment of all premiums billed for the Standard Plan. Staff who wish to enhance their coverage or add dependents will be billed directly for the additional cost.
