Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are currently not able to hold face to face workshops as we normally would. The Area 03 Cross Component Committee would like to invite you to join a free online Pension Workshop. This educational session will be useful for all BCGEU members who want more information related to their Municipal, Public Service or College Pension Plans and Government retiree programs.

All participants can call in with a phone number or log in with the Zoom app from your phone or home computer. Once you have registered via the above link, you will receive the Zoom instructions along with confirmation of registration. About four days before you will receive a copy of the slide-deck and some other printed material so you can review it early and submit questions at least two days before. Two days before the workshop, Thursday, March 25, you will receive an email with a link to the Zoom presentation and phone numbers if you are calling in. Please watch for this email


What's New With Pensions?: Your pension, your plan, plus CPP, OAS, and GIS


· A BCGEU pension specialist will begin with an explanation on the differences between a defined benefit pension and a defined contribution pension plan-do you know what type your plan is? Learn to understand the differences in predicting retirement income under the different arrangements and why it is so important.

· You will then be given an overview of the various public sector (MPP, PSPP and College) pension plans BCGEU members are in.

· In addition there will be a presentation on the three basic government programs for the Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement.

· See how it all ties together to provide you with a more financially secure retirement.
