How to Register
The Construction Workers’ Pension Scheme (CWPS), provides sick pay benefit to members who can not work due to illness or injury. To join the Sick Pay Trust, you must be a member of CWPS.
Sick pay benefit is provided at a low weekly cost to both employer and members. It is paid to active members up to the age of 70 years. Both the employee and employer pay a weekly contribution to the Sick Pay Trust and this covers members for benefit if they are absent from work due to illness or injury.
This contribution, along with the deduction for pension and death in service benefit, is deducted from the member’s wages each week by their employer as part of the Construction Workers’ Pension Scheme. The Sick Pay Trust is managed by the Construction Workers’ Sick Pay Trustee DAC and benefits are paid directly from the fund without the need for medical underwriting.
Membership of CWPS also satisfies the conditions of the current Sectoral Employment Orders (Construction and Electrical Contracting Sectors 2021), in respect of pension, Sick Pay and Death in Service benefit for all workers registered with CWPS.
