Joining the pension plan

If you are under 35 years of age when hired and you meet the eligibility criteria set out in the table, you may join the pension plan on the date of hire (if hired on the first of the month) or the first of any month following the date of hire. If you do not join when eligible and choose to waive eligibility, you must join on the January 1 following or coincident with your 35th birthday. 

A summary of eligibility, contributions, how to join, and beneficiary information can be viewed on the Joining the pension plan web page.
