CUPE retirement planning seminar – June 9-10

CUPE 2081 co-hosting a two-day CUPE BC Workshop, Retirement Planning, for interested members.

The workshop will be held from 9:00am-4:00pm on each of June 9-10/16 (Thursday-Friday) in Room 211, Centre for Business & Access (CBA 211) at the Interurban campus:

It’s never too early to start planning for your retirement. Learn about government and workplace pensions and leave with some good tools to help you prepare financially and psychologically.

NOTE: This workshop does not provide specific or personal financial advice.
Participants are requested to bring their Member Benefits Statement as the MPP presenter goes over them during their presentation.

If the participant does not have their Statement, please have them call MPP at 1-800-668-6335 to set up an account.

If they already have an account and need to reprint their statement, they can go to the MPP site and select “My Account” and follow the directions.

Please bring a calculator.

The workshop has been coordinated with the assistance of Greg Burkitt, CUPE National Education Representative, Erynne Grant, CUPE Local 2081 Education Coordinator, and CUPE 2011.
