Most absences from work are normally for a relatively short period and do not affect your membership.
If you are absent due to illness or injury you could be entitled to receive benefits from the Company’s Long Term Sick Pay Scheme. Should your absence not be illness or injury related, or relate to authorised leave, for example, maternity, parental or adoption leave, your membership of the DC Section can continue with the consent of the Company.
Details of your membership and benefits under the DC Section during time off can be obtained from your local HR contact or the DC Section Administrator.
Should you die while absent from work but membership has been assumed to continue, you will continue to be covered for the death in Service benefits in full.
