Faculty and staff are invited to retirement planning sessions

Registration now open for November 13 and 15 events

October 16, 2018 — 

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.

“Last May, my husband and I participated in the pilot session on retirement planning and we learned so much”, says Laurie Morris, President, Association of Employees Supporting Education Service (AESES).  “I would definitely recommend to my colleagues who are close to retirement that they enroll in this educational session.”

The November 13 session will be held at the Fort Garry campus; the November 15 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.


To attend the November 13 session at Fort Garry, register here.

To attend the November 15 session at Banatyne, register here.  

Questions about the sessions can be directed to Kate Plett, pension administrator, pension office, human resources, at 204-474-8476 or
