Course Description

The United Church of Canada provides a Defined Benefit Pension Plan for all employees who work more than 14 hours a week. Join us for this 90-minute program to learn about how the plan works, what it costs, what it provides, and how you can customize it to meet your needs. In this program we'll describe

  • what a "defined benefit plan" is
  • how costs and benefits are determined
  • other ways you might plan for retirement, including personal savings, government benefits, and coordination with other pension or benefits plans you may have access to
  • options to consider as you prepare to retire.

Who Should Attend

All members of the plan will find this information useful, but we particularly recommend it for

  • people who are new to the plan (those who are recently hired)
  • members or their family members who are in the midst of a significant life change (birth, marriage, divorce, death, job change)
  • people who are planning for retirement
  • members of Ministry & Personnel Committees or congregational boards/councils
  • church treasurers
