Pensions Workshop (Kamloops)

Saturday, May 28, 2016 - 10:00am to 3:00pm

The Area 05 Cross Component is sponsoring a FREE 2 hour Pensions Workshop for BCGEU members.

The workshop will run at 10:00 am and again 1:00 pm.

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.
