If your marriage or common-law relationship has ended, please contact the Pension Office.
Death of a Member or Spouse after Retirement
If you are a retired member receiving a pension from the Plan and your spouse has died, or if you are a surviving spouse or partner, beneficiary or the legal representative for the member’s estate, please contact the Pension Office as soon as possible to report the death of the member, spouse or beneficiary.
At retirement, if a member elects to have a monthly pension payment from the Plan the member’s total account used to determine the Plan pension and any pension guarantee funding required, if applicable is transferred to the Pensioner Account. As part of the valuation, the actuary will provide a review of the Pensioner Account’s assets versus the liabilities for all pensioners. If the actuary determines that the Account’s assets are sufficient to cover a full or partial increase, then increases in pension will be provided at the next April 1. The actuary advised that due to the continuing shortfall in the Pensioner Account, no increases has been provided since 2001.
