Retirement planning sessions for faculty and staff

Registration now open for sessions on May 8, 23 and 30

March 12, 2019 — 

Current faculty and staff who are plan members of the University of Manitoba Pension Plan (1993) and who are planning to retire within the next five years, are invited to register for the upcoming retirement planning sessions being offered by human resources.

Speakers will provide information on: the retirement planning process; U of M’s pension plan and the pension benefit payout options available on retirement; government benefits; taxes; wills; estate planning; and retiree health benefits.

“The Retirement Planning Session provided a clear and comprehensive overview of the options available to an individual considering retirement, says Janice Tilly, executive assistant to the dean of engineering and UMFA human resource manager.

“The facilitator was knowledgeable and presented additional information to consider when deciding what option to choose with your pension. It was an excellent workshop.”

The sessions on May 8 and 23 will be held at the Fort Garry campus; the May 30 session will be held at the Bannatyne campus. A light lunch will be provided.

Register early because each session is limited to 20 faculty and staff; there is extra room if employees want to bring their partner to the session.
