Use the general pension estimator

Use the general pension estimator to find out what your monthly pension payment might be, based on your salary and years of service.

What can BC's Public Service Pension Plan mean for your retirement income? Our general pension estimator tool can estimate the value of your monthly pension payment to help you explore your options. It will also show the value of your bridge benefit, if applicable.

You will need to enter the following information:

  • Your age
  • Spouse’s age (if applicable)
  • Planned retirement date
  • Salary information
  • Service information (e.g., whether you are working full time or part time)


The general pension estimator doesn’t work for all scenarios. Please contact the plan if you:

  • Have a former spouse who has or had an entitlement to your pension
  • Transferred service from another pension plan and the service/salary is part of your most recent five years
  • Are a public safety employee (including a correctional employee and certain BC Ambulance Service paramedic in the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 873)
