Throughout your career we’ll be here to help you understand the advantages of being part of a defined benefit pension plan and what that means for your retirement.

  • Who is eligible to join the Plan?

    The Plan provides pensions to full-time employees of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, including Government agencies, boards, commissions, and health authorities.

  • Do I have to join the Plan?

    If you are employed on a full-time basis (including full-time seasonal workers) with a participating employer, you will automatically be enrolled in the PSPP.

  • When can I join the Plan?

    You will generally join the Plan on the date that you are hired on a full-time basis. Specific circumstances include:

    • All eligible full-time employees must join the Plan from the date of hire.
    • Temporary employees, whose employment period will involve four calendar months of continuous service, must join the Plan on the date of hire. Temporary employees, initially hired for less than four months, must join the Plan immediately upon the employer’s determination that the employment period will extend into the fourth calendar month.
    • Seasonal (full-time) workers must join the Plan from the date of hire.
    • Employees who at one time had an option whether to join the Plan and, elected not to do so, may enroll at any time, and have the option of purchasing all eligible prior service.
  • What constitutes ineligibility?

    If you are employed in any of the following categories, you do not qualify for membership in the Plan:

    • Part-time employee
    • Employee of Commission of Inquiry
    • Temporary employee hired for a period that does not involve four calendar months of continuous employment
    • Student (includes nursing and medical student)
    • Contractual employee (unless the employment contract specifies that the employee must participate in the Plan)
    • Casual employee
