Joining the ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan

Built by seniors for seniors, the ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan allows members to continue receiving robust coverage after retirement, including medical, dental, travel, life insurance, and home and auto options at industry-leading rates. Members also enjoy the freedom of selecting the coverage level that's right for them – from basic medical and dental coverage, to enhanced offerings that include unmatched travel options.

ARTA makes it easy for members to manage their coverage. With access to fast claims service and point of sale claims, ARTA works with health service providers across Canada to reduce members' time spent processing claims – often the covered amount will be deducted right at the cash register. And with leading technology for managing coverage and innovative wellness programs, ARTA Retiree Benefits Plan members have a wealth of tools available to enhance their health and wellness.
