Pension sessions just for you

Posted for Members, April 16, 2019

Did you know? The CAAT Pension Plan offers a variety of pension sessions to suit the needs of all members. Along with our website, Member Handbooks, and your Annual Statements, pension sessions give members another way to learn about their pensions, and a unique opportunity to get answers to their questions directly from pension professionals.

A variety of topics
The most popular “Planning for retirement” session is a must for members of all ages. It answers the top questions members have about their pension: “when can I retire?” and “how much will my pension be?” Other sessions include an introduction for new members, and an overview of pension purchases for members who are interested in increasing their pension.

Different formats to suit your needs
We know that not all members can attend presentations on the same day or at the same time. That’s why we offer a variety of formats—so you’re sure to find an option that fits your busy schedule.

  • Workplace sessions come to you! The CAAT Plan’s pension education specialist will work with your HR department to schedule a presentation at your workplace. Workplace sessions are generally held at different times during the workday so that all interested members are able to attend.
  • Regional sessions take place outside of working hours, normally on weekends. No matter where you work, you’re invited to attend any session that takes place at a location near you, and guests are welcome. Watch for your invitation to the next regional session in your area, and find out for yourself why last year, 8 out of 10 attendees who responded to a survey said that they would be very likely to recommend that their colleagues attend as well.
  • Can’t attend in person? Our webinars offer the same great content as our in-person sessions, but as an interactive session that you can view from almost anywhere. All you need to participate is an internet connection, and speakers or a phone. You can also watch the sessions as “on demand” videos at any time right here on our website.

Pension sessions are open to all members of the Plan, whether you’re earning a pension in DBprime or in DBplus. Contact your HR department to find out when the next workplace session will take place, and watch your email for invitations to upcoming webinars or regional sessions in your area.
