MESSAGE FROM TTC PENSION FUND SOCIETY

6/17/13 6:11 AM

Notice of improvements

After careful consideration of affordable plan improvements based on the Plan’s actuarial reports, the Board of Directors is pleased to advise all Members of the following changes to the Pension Plan effective January 1, 2013.

For members who retired on or after January 1, 2013, your pensionable earnings in 2009 and 2010 will now be included in the base period for calculating pension benefits. The base-period formula will now be the average of your best four years of pensionable earnings up to December 31, 2010.

In lock-step with this formula update, the Survivor Benefit Date has been moved to January 1, 2011. This means that for married Members, the 60% survivor option will have no cost for all pension service prior to January 1, 2011.

Also, Pensioners will receive a 2% ad hoc cost-of-living increase effective January 1, 2013.

The Bylaw Amendments to effect the improvements will be presented to the TTC Board on May 24, 2013 and to the Members at the Annual General Meeting on Saturday, June 22, 2013 (see below).

If you have any questions or would like an updated pension estimate, please call the Pension Office at 416-393-4367 or 416-393-4368 or toll free at 1-800-663-6820.
