As a member of the VSTA-SIF, after depletion of your sick leave, you may
be eligible to a top-up payment of your BCTF salary indemnity which
would then equal 65% of your gross salary.
The yearly fees for continuing and associate members
are $40 and $45 respectively. Members who do not pay their fee by
December 31 of each year will be charged a $5 reminder fee, and if they
are in arrears after one full year, be de-activated from SIF membership.
The salary top up provided by the plan is available for a maximum of
twenty (20) days.

directly to the VSTA and is not deducted by payroll.

must be a child or legal ward of an active VSTA member in good standing
or of a retired member. A total of four scholarships will be awarded: 1
