What happens when you contact us
We will review the information you give us as well as any relevant background information in our files. We will then respond to you promptly with answers to your questions or information about how we’re addressing the issues you have raised. As the administrative agent of BC's Municipal Pension Plan, our priority is to ensure we apply the plan rules correctly.
If you aren't satisfied with our response
If you are not satisfied with our response, you can contact the director of pension operations at Pension Corporation in writing. Include any information and documents relevant to your concern.
The director will review any information you provide to determine whether the corporation correctly applied the rules in your case. Immediately after completing this administrative review, the director will send you a letter either confirming or changing the original decision.
Option to appeal
If you are still not satisfied after the Pension Corporation’s director of pension operations’ administrative review, you can appeal the matter to the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees.
You have one year from the date of the director’s administrative review letter to start the appeal process.
Please note that you can’t appeal the plan rules. You can only appeal a decision made by Pension Corporation in how it has applied the plan rules.
