Did you know?

Did you know that the Public Service Pension Plan is the largest pension plan in Newfoundland and Labrador with over 55,000 members?

Who is responsible for pensioner payroll?

On the November 15, 2018, pay date we began the process of changing payroll providers from the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador to CIBC Mellon. To ensure a smooth transition, we transferred our members in phases. Initially, 4,000 members who met the criteria were transitioned to the new payroll provider. These members were notified of the change in their service provider as well as any changes they may have experienced as a result.

For those who did not make the transition, your pension payments and tax slips will continue to be processed by the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador as usual. Eventually, all our members will make the transition to CIBC Mellon.

Pay Dates

Pay dates remain the same, whether you have already made the transition to CIBC Mellon or will in the future.

New retirees are approved for placement on pensioner payroll only on the 15th pay date of each month.  If a retiree cannot be placed on the initial 15th pay date, efforts will be made to place them on the next available 15th pay date, with payment of pension being made retroactively to the effective date. Pensioner and refund payrolls are issued on the 15th and 31st of the month, or the closest business day if the 15th and 31st fall on a weekend or holiday. To view the 2021 payroll dates, click here.
