Cheshire East Long Term Sickness Scheme
Under Fair Funding the budget for Long Term Sickness Cover is delegated to schools. The authority operates a Long Term Sickness Insurance Fund which schools either Maintained or Academy can opt to join.
Premiums are based on staff numbers funded through the Funding Formula and not on actual numbers of staff in post (although cover is provided for all actual qualifying staff in post). A number of options are available offering different reimbursement rates and sickness qualifying periods for different premiums.
