Understanding Your Faculty Pension Plan (UYFPP)

This 1-hour seminar provides an opportunity for UBC Faculty Pension Plan members to learn about the Plan’s features and benefits, investment options and member responsibilities. Whether you are new or have been in the Plan for a while, you’ll come away with useful information about your pension plan and how to make the most of your member experience.

If you are approaching retirement, we recommend attending Understanding Your Retirement Income Options (see above) instead of this seminar.

The next seminar dates are:

    • Tuesday, May 14, 2024
