Contribution rate increase

January 18, 2018

Phase 1 takes effect April 2018

In our last Annual Report, we highlighted that the Plan requires a contribution rate increase to respond to changes in plan member longevity and investment expectations. To address this, and maintain benefit levels, the Plan Sponsor (the Government of Ontario) has announced a 1% increase in contribution rates for Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP) members and employers which will be phased-in over 2 years starting the first full pay in April.

Even with the increase, our contribution rates remain among the lowest of the public sector plans in Ontario.
