To make a severance claim with CIRT, you need to submit a completed application for payment of benefit form to the administrator. When submitting your claim, please ensure that all details on this form are completed in full and returned to the Administrator. To process your claim, the fund requires a Certificate of Employment to be completed by your previous employers. If you have been provided with this form, it should be returned with your application. In most cases however, the administrator will request it from the employers directly. Your claim will usually be paid within 48 hours of both of these forms being correctly completed and presented to the Administrator.

If you are claiming based on severe financial hardship, you must contact the Fund's Administrator for these forms. Once completed and returned with all necessary documentation, the case will be presented to the trustees at the next board meeting. Please note that board meetings are held on a quarterly basis.

An application for payment of benefit form can be submitted either online through CIRT Online or as a paper Claim.
