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 Public Sector Pension Plans

· In addition, there will be an update of the three basic government programs, 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.
