Introduction

A pension can be an important component of your retirement security, and it's one advantage of being a unionized public sector professional.

Defined benefit pension plans pool contributions from you and your Employer in a pension fund. These funds are then invested, and when you retire, provide you with a secure and predictable income.

The Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP) is the pension for AMAPCEO members in the Ontario Public Service.


Eligibility

Regular employees

  • Full-time employees and part-time employees must contribute to the PSPP.

Fixed-term (contract) employees


Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP)

The PSPP is a major defined benefit pension plan sponsored by the Government of Ontario and its members include AMAPCEO members and other public sector professionals.

The PSPP is administered by the Ontario Pension Board (OPB), an organization established in 1990 under the Public Service Pension Act. AMAPCEO's President currently sits on the OPB Board of Directors.


If you have questions or need assistance
