Selection periods

The Rewards Extra platform is open all the time and selections run month to month. Any benefits that you select, amend or cancel during the current month will become effective for the following month's payroll. For example, if you sign up for Dental Insurance in January, your cover will become effective on February 1st, and you will also see your first deduction for this cover in your February payslip. Similarly, if you cancel a benefit in January, you will continue to pay for it and have access to it in January, but it will be cancelled from February 1st and you will not be charged in February payroll.

All benefits can be selected at any time, with the exception of Critical Illness. Critical Illness cover can be selected during the annual renewal window in September, or as the result of a valid lifestyle change (details are available on the Rewards Extra platform).
