When a member has been made ineligible for sick fund as per the society’s rules and has made over 2 years of contributions to the society, they will be entitled to a partial refund of their balance. Any payment a society member is eligible for must be claimed within six months, as this will see the right to claim revoked, unless exceptional circumstances arise.
It must be considered that the responsibility of applying for any payment or refund is solely down to the person entitled to the refund. Also, any application must include the applicants full name, address, occupation and the location of the employer and the date of termination from old workplace.
As of members who joined from 31
st December 2020 the sick benefit rate is £22.50 per week for the first 39 weeks of a continuous period of sickness. However, it is important to understand that anyone who has reached the maximum limit of this benefit will cease to be entitled until they have returned to work for a minimum of thirteen continuous weeks.
If a period of absence is due to an accident, sickness or other infirmity, the member is required to notify the society within a 3-month period. Should notice not be given in time, the member in question will only be entitled benefit from the day notice was given onward, meaning there will be no backtrack payment for the months prior.
For 100 years we have provided a service to bus company employees throughout London and the Southeast. We aim to ensure bus employees are looked after in instances where they are unwell and unable to work, and therefore left financially desolate.
Upon the death of a member no money will be paid unless documentation is provided, this is due to mandatory security checks. One if the following must be produced in such an instance:
Death Certificate Birth Certificate Marriage Certificate
Any such claim is to be submitted in writing, and must include the full name, address and relationship of the claimant to the deceased.
