Education Workers Benefit Plan (EWBT)

Dear member,
As most of you may know, your CUPE EWBT benefits plan now includes a time-limited Healthcare Spending Account (HCSA).
Your CUPE EWBT website has a page dedicated to information about this new time-limited account, as well as resources to help you make the most of it.
For those who haven’t heard about the time-limited HCSA, and for those who might have questions, we’ve put together a short video that provides the information you need.
We also enhanced the Frequently Asked Questions section of the CUPE EWBT website, and have included a link to the recorded version of the webinar we hosted on February 27, 2022.
It’s all available now on the CUPE EWBT website.
If you have questions or any concerns, please email them to
