Public Employees Dental Plan
Established on February 1, 1982 the intent of the Public Employees Dental Plan is to promote good dental health by reducing employee costs for preventative, routine and major restorative dental work.
Coverage under the Plan is provided to employees of Executive Government, several Crown Corporations and Various Agencies, Boards and Commissions as approved by the Lieutenant Governor in Council.
The Public Employees Dental Plan is self-insured and is managed by the Public Employees Benefits Agency, Saskatchewan Finance (PEBA).
The Canada Life Assurance Company is contracted under an Administrative Services Only Agreement to provide claims adjudication and benefit payment services to the Plan.
Effective January 1, 2020 our benefits provider, Great-West Life will be coming together with London Life and Canada Life as one company to be known as Canada Life Assurance Company, or simply Canada Life.
There will be no changes to our group benefits. As a member you will continue to use your current benefits card, and you can still submit claims and review your benefits history on GroupNet for Plan Members with the same login.

Benefits of Direct Deposit
If your dental provider does not directly bill Great-West Life for services, to help ensure prompt delivery of your benefit payment under the Public Employees Dental Plan, you may wish to consider Direct Deposit as a convenient service.
With Direct Deposit, you can have your benefit cheques automatically deposited to your bank account at no extra cost. There are no delays due to mail disruptions, lost or stolen cheques and no need to deposit your cheques in person.
To sign up direct deposit, have your bank account information handy and either:
- Register and log into GroupNet for Plan Members to sign up for direct deposit online; or,
- Complete a Canada Life Banking Information Form. Print and complete the form and send to Canada Life via fax or email:
If you would like deposits made to your chequing account, include a copy of a cheque marked “void”. If you would like deposits made to your savings account, contact your institution for your Transit Number, Institution Number and Account Number.
