Online services ready when you are
We know you’re busy. Learn what online services are available to make your pension experience easy.
Have you ever found yourself awake at night, your mind buzzing with all the things you have to do? Do you wonder how soon you should start planning to retire? Do you keep meaning to check on the cost of buying service, but the time is never right? Have you expanded your family and wonder if your pension protects them? If you’re retired, do you wonder how much pension income you need to report? Have you moved house or changed banks? Have you found yourself asking, “Who has time for all this?”
With our online services, we can say with confidence, “You do.” BC’s Municipal Pension Plan understands today’s plan members are busy, and need flexibility and convenience when they interact with the plan. This is why we’ve enhanced the services and transactions members can complete online. Most of the transactions can be completed in less than 10 minutes.
