A Post-Retirement Spending Account (PRSA) is given to retiring Faculty members who are over the age of 55 and have a minimum of ten (10) years of service.

The Post-Retirement Spending Account is intended to assist employees in transitioning from the University of Saskatchewan benefit programs to individual plans during the first two years of retirement.

The Post-Retirement Spending Account is administered by Sun Life Financial and will provide reimbursement of premiums that are paid to private health and dental insurance plans offered through any registered insurer.

Annual Allotment

The PRSA provides $2,000 for each of the first two years following retirement.

The university will allocate the applicable amount of funds to your account.

Carry Forward Credit Accrual

Your initial deposit to the PRSA will be effective on your retirement date. Any unused funds will be carried forward until December 31 of the year following your retirement date, at which time any remaining funds will be forfeited.

Your second and final deposit to the PRSA will be made on the January 1 following your date of retirement. This second deposit will be available to you until December 31 of the year following the date you received the second allocation, at which time any remaining funds will be forfeited.

Eligible Expenses

Your eligible expenses are any expenses eligible under the faculty Health Spending Account. For further information on claim eligibility please refer to the Health Spending Account plan summary.


Based on the University of Saskatchewan’s interpretation of The Income Tax Act, amounts reimbursed under the PRSA are considered non- taxable to participating retirees.
