New students wanting to access the plan will have to wait until November or March, as there is a 2 month blackout period while changes are being made to the plan. Keep all original receipts, and we can help you file manual claims at the Ryerson Benefits Plan office, Student Centre Lobby or you can submit online www.mystudentplan.ca/rsu! Coverage will be retroactive to September 1 or January 1, depending on the term enrolled into the plan.
