It is a mathematical certainty that working sessionals are worth more dead than alive.
Under the collective agreement, sessionals who die while under contract are entitled to a death benefit and an insurance pay out, which is added to whatever they had prior to their demise. However, the insurance claim must be made within 90 days of death. Make sure that you have a will and that your executor knows that you are entitled to these post-mortem benefits – for the sake of your beneficiary or your estate.
In the meantime, make plans to attend the Annual General Meeting at the University Club on Thursday, December 8th. Meeting at 4 pm. Drinks and Dinner to follow.
