Transitioning from a Department to CIHR
A word to employees of Federal Departments and Separate Agencies
Making the transition to CIHR: A continuation of your benefits, or similar ones
If you are currently employed in the federal public service, a transition to CIHR is usually seamless.
- Your total service in the public service continues without interruption and qualifies for determining your entitlements under leave provisions
- Your annual vacation time (up to a maximum of 35 days) and accumulated sick leave are transferable.
- CIHR participates in Federal Public Service Benefit Plans. If you are currently a member, your coverage will continue with no interruption. If not, you can enroll upon joining CIHR, depending on your employment status.
CIHR Benefit plans include:
- Public Service Superannuation Plan (PSSA)
- Supplementary Death Benefit (SDB)
- Public Service Management Insurance Plan (PSMIP)
- Long Term Disability Insurance (LTD)
- Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP)
- Public Service Dental Care Plan (PSDCP)
