Returning to work after retirement

If you return to work after retiring, you will continue to receive your pension from the plan.

COVID-19 and returning to work after retirement: If you're a Municipal Pension Plan member returning to work as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, you may need the information on this page. Thank you for your help in the provincial response to COVID-19.

You may decide to return to work after you retire and are receiving a pension from BC's Municipal Pension Plan. If this is the case, you will continue to receive your pension.

If you start working for an employer that participates in the Municipal Pension Plan, please inform your employer that you are a retired member of the plan. This will ensure that your employer does not re-enrol you in the plan.

If your new employer does not participate in the Municipal Pension Plan, you may be eligible to contribute to your new employer’s pension plan, if it has one. Talk to your new employer for details.
