Starting a new job with an employer participating in the plan

Starting a new job with another employer participating in the plan? Learn how it affects your pension.


If your new employer also participates in BC's Municipal Pension Plan, you will remain a member if you make a contribution within 30 days of leaving your old job.

We will combine your service from your old and new jobs. This service will continue to accumulate in the pension plan.

If more than 30 days passes between the last day of your old job and the first day of your new job, you will need to meet the eligibility rules again to rejoin the plan.

Concurrent employment: what happens if you take a second job with an employer that also participates in the plan

If you take a job with another employer that participates in the plan or work in more than one position with the same employer, you will make contributions and earn service in the second job like you do in your first job. The difference is the plan will cap pensionable   and contributory service   at 12 months.
 

You must inform both employers if you begin contributing to the plan with another employer that participates in MPP.

If you were eligible to contribute but did not, you may have arrears. Please contact your employer if you have concerns that you may not have been contributing to the plan when you should have been.
