UBC Staff Pension Plan

Staff pension plans are jointly paid by employees and the University and provide excellent benefits for retired employees. A Pensions Board elected from among the employees oversees the operations and design of the Plans.

The UBC Staff Pension Plan (SPP) program is administered by the UBC Pension Administration Office. For more details on the SPP, please see: http://www.pensions.ubc.ca/staff/.

Contributions are mandatory after three years of service, but optional before that if you meet the eligibility requirements. The UBC Staff Pension Plan is a Defined Benefit (DB) plan. There are options for withdrawing your contribution if you leave UBC before retirement. There are pension workshops and information sessions available throughout the year.
