*Note: Within our course, we only offer the Pension Centre’s “regular” pension presentation (Public Service Superannuation Act) for public servants. That presentation is different and does not apply to the other plans.

The onus is on the participant to confirm the pension plan they contribute to prior to attending this course. If you are unsure which pension plan you belong to, please call the Pension Centre at 1.800.561.7930. They are available 8:00 – 4:00 pm (Atlantic Time).
