Welcome aboard the CAAT Pension Plan flight to your future.

 

Please follow along as we take you through your pre-departure and flight information.

 

As a new member of the CAAT Pension Plan, you are now part of a well-managed, secure defined benefit pension plan.

This means that your pension is based on your earnings and years of service. The more service you earn, the bigger your pension will be.

Your contributions are matched dollar for dollar by your employer and are tax-deductible.

Not only that, but when you retire, your pension is paid for the rest of your life.

How long is the flight? The CAAT Pension Plan has flexible retirement options.

All members can retire at age 55 or up to 71 – the choice is yours to retire at the time that is best for you!

See for yourself on our 3-step pension estimator for real-life results.

Once in the air, there are many portability options to discover.

You can purchase any past service you may have, or transfer in your pension from a prior plan.

If you change careers, you can take your pension with you or leave it with us for safe keeping until you’re ready to retire.

All of these options allow you to maximize your security when it comes time to retire.

We know your family is along for the ride, so the Plan includes survivor benefits.

In case of any outside turbulence, your CAAT Plan pension includes inflation protection to help your lifetime pension meet rising living costs.

So sit back and relax. We’ll be here to help you soar to retirement.
