Pensions Workshop (Castlegar) 10:00 am
2316 Columbia Ave 130 Castlegar, BC V1N 2X1 Canada
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 an update on the changes to the three basic government programs that are currently underway 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.
This is a FREE two-hour workshop provided to BCGEU members.
A light lunch will be provided at noon and if you choose you may also register for the Budgeting 101 workshop at 1:00 pm.
