Operations Committee: Assists the Board of Trustees in ensuring efficient operations of the Scheme, such as the collection of contributions, claim payments and managing member records. The committee also assists the Board of Trustees with marketing and communications.
Ex Gratia Committee: Assesses, decides and reports on the approval of Ex Gratia payments, such as the payment of members' claims where normal benefits are not available. Strict criteria are consistently applied when the committee meets every six weeks to consider requests for Ex Gratia payments.
Governance and Risk Committee: Ensures that sound corporate governance is applied in the Scheme's affairs by making sure the Scheme complies with all laws and rules that affect its operations. The committee also makes sure that risks to the Scheme's business are identified and properly managed and that the interests of all stakeholders in the Scheme are properly protected.
Dispute Committee: Independently considers and presides over any dispute the members may refer to them for consideration.
