Ownership and Control

The NLTA Group Insurance Plan is owned by the Newfoundland and Labrador Teachers’ Association and operated through a seven person Board of Teacher Managers, appointed by and answerable to the Provincial Executive of the Association. Under the terms of the Deed of Trust, the Managers are given the mandate and responsibility for overseeing the operation of all aspects of the Group Insurance Plan. The Trust document stipulates that the Managers shall consist of seven members of the Association, appointed by the Executive, and that the Provincial Executive shall designate one of those members as the Chairperson. The Managers are essentially a Board of Directors appointed by Executive to manage the Group Insurance Plan.

Administration and Consultation

In 1964 Johnson Inc. was hired as Plan Administrator and Consultant when the plan was initiated and the company continues in that role to present day. Johnson Inc. possesses the insurance expertise and technical systems that provides services to NLTA in areas of consultation, administration, payment of claims and collection/disbursement of premiums. The Managers authorize Johnson Inc. to accept bids from insurance underwriters and enter into approved contracts with underwriters after the options in the Plan are placed on the market. All final contractual decisions are made by your NLTA Group Insurance Managers.
