DESIGNATE A BENEFICIARY
June 13, 2019

As communicated in our previous letter, the Teachers’ Pension Plan (the “Plan”) has been amended to allow members to designate beneficiaries to receive death benefits in certain circumstances. This is considered a positive improvement, in particular, for pension plan members without a Principal Beneficiary (meaning a spouse or cohabiting partner).

All Plan Members will receive, in the mail, a second letter from Paula McDonald, CEO of the Teachers’ Pension Plan Corporation (TPPC) providing details with respect to this change. A copy of that letter can be viewed HERE.

ALL PENSION PLAN MEMBERS SHOULD COMPLETE THE DESIGNATION OF BENEFICIARY FORM AVAILABLE HERE.
