The Pension Committee has approved a recommendation to the Board of Governors to update the mortality tables used to calculate starting Money Purchase pensions.

  • The new mortality tables will be implemented over a four-year period commencing after July 1, 2016
  • Pensions commencing on or before July 1, 2016 will not be affected.
  • The change does not affect anyone who is currently receiving a pension from the Plan or anyone who retires on a Minimum Guarantee pension.
  • The Retirement Planner or pension estimates from the pension department have NOT been updated to reflect this change. Members will be notified when the planner is updated.
