Public Service Pension Plan

The PSPP is a defined benefit plan which means members will receive a pension based on their pensionable salary and years of pensionable service. In a defined benefit plan, the investment performance of the pension fund will not affect the calculation of your pension.

This enables you to plan for your retirement because you can estimate your future pension income. The Plan is financed by employee and employer contributions and by investment earnings.

Visit: to find out about:

  • Portability of the pension plan - effective January 1, 2008, if you are an active member of PSPP with pension entitlements in another public sector pension plan, you may be able to transfer those entitlements into PSPP through a reciprocal transfer agreement. Note there is a one year time limit for making your application starting from your date of hire.
