Pension purchases webinar

Did you know that you can increase your pension with a purchase?

If you have eligible periods to purchase, such as periods of employment before enrolling, breaks in employment, or if you earned a benefit from a previous employer’s pension plan, you may have an opportunity to make your CAAT Plan pension even more valuable by making a pension purchase.

The webinar will cover:

  • What a pension purchase is
  • The amount of pension you can expect to get from a purchase
  • How to determine if a pension purchase is right for you
  • How to make a pension purchase

Who should attend: The session is for you if you are a member of the CAAT Pension Plan earning a pension in DBprime or DBplus, and you want to know  if a purchase may be right for you.

Closed captioning is available. If you select Closed Captioning when you register, you will receive a link to the closed captioning module in the reminder email an hour before the webinar begins.
