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. Learn to understand your choices at retirement. Also, review the changes to the PSPP that occurred in 2018.
In addition there will be a section on the Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security and the Guaranteed Income Supplement programs and how they fit in with your workplace pension.
See how it all ties together to provide you with a more financially secure retirement.
