Workers Eligible to Participate in CIP
Any eligible worker of a participating employer whether full-time, part-time or casual, including apprentices, can participate in CIP. Casual workers will have payments made on a weekly basis, which will provide seven days coverage from the date of payment;
e.g. payment made on Tuesday, covered until 12 midnight the following Monday.
Contributions cannot be made for any worker once they are 70 years of age.
Workers Joining CIP
It is the responsibility of employers to pay contributions on behalf of their workers to CIP, after the employer has signed an Employer Application for Membership.
The worker is covered by the fund when his / her employer enters the worker's name and details through the online contributions system and pays contributions on behalf of the worker. For the worker to be eligible for benefits, his / her claim must fall within the terms and conditions of the policies.
