Phoenix Damages: Claims Process for Former and Retired Members

December 16, 2021

We are happy to announce that the federal government has updated its Phoenix general damages webpage and that the claims process for former and retired members is now available.

The general damages compensation covers our members who were employed between 2016 and 2020. Entitlement to compensation is as follows:

2016/2017          $1,000
2017/2018          $500
2018/2019          $500
2019/2020          $500

A member is eligible for the designated amount as long as they were employed on an indeterminate basis, or were on a term for more than 3 months, and worked one full day during the fiscal year of the claim.

In Solidarity,
