Pension Life - Winter 2020

Less paper, all the news

Welcome to your Pension Life…online! We’ve adapted the Pension Life newsletter and added it to your plan website. Here you can access your pension news and plan updates anytime. Plus you’ll find new online features such as tax-time tips, quick links to all your pension resources and more!

In January 2021, pension news will only be available online, but we’ll continue to mail paper copies of all important plan updates, such as plan amendments and inflation adjustments.

Watch the website for updates, and don’t forget to register for My Account so you can access all your information in one place.
