Accessing your benefits

A male and female couple in a light area are looking at their laptop on a table. They seem focused and interested, and they are smiling.

As a member of the Electrical Industry of Ottawa Group Benefit and Pension Plans, you will be able to access your benefits by submitting claims for medical expenses incurred.

You will be able to submit health claims electronically by logging into the Ellement App; however, some providers have the option to direct bill.
