The Public Safety/CORP Cancer Insurance Policy Program (CIP) was created and designed to assist Tier 1, 2 or 3 DB/DC Members with the costs that may arise in the event that you are diagnosed with cancer and must undergo treatment. The CIP provides reimbursement to you for out-of-pocket expenses incurred for eligible expenses under the plan and as an active member of the PSPRS, you are automatically covered. Premiums for the program are paid by your employer each year.
When you retire from your employer, coverage continues for a limited amount of time at no cost to you; see Coverage at Retirement.
- $15,000 payment to members with non-skin cancer

- Overall lifetime maximum benefit amount of $100,000 per member
