Self-financed leave allows eligible employees to finance an otherwise unpaid leave by deferring a portion of their pay, in accordance with tax regulations in force (minimum length of leave, leave start and end dates). Self-financed leave comprises a working period and a leave.
This type of leave requires an agreement with your employer.
Desjardins Group Pension Plan (DGPP)
During the working period, contributions to the DGPP are based on 100% of the employee’s salary (before reduction).
During the leave (employee not at work), the conditions for unpaid leave apply.
