Retirement health benefits: review and engagement
This engagement process was about listening and learning from members about the post-retirement benefits that matter most to them and why.
What we heard from members
In fall 2019, we asked members to tell us their priorities for group benefits based on a number of possible benefit changes. More than 4,000 members participated and we reported on what members told us about their preferences.
Post-retirement group benefits reviews
The Municipal Pension Board of Trustees works hard to provide members access to group health benefits in retirement. The board regularly reviews the post-retirement group benefits program as part of good governance.
The last review was completed in June 2020. The board announced the outcome in the July 16, 2020, board communique, Extended health group benefits are improving January 1, 2021.
