Did your pension plan recently convert to UPP?

If you were earning pension benefits under your university’s prior plan when it converted to UPP, you automatically become a member of UPP on the day your university joins. Pension benefits earned under your prior plan remain unchanged and are now payable from UPP.

You can still:

  • Get information about your prior plan through your university’s website and pension administration team, and
  • Use the pension calculator on your prior plan’s website to see your benefits earned under both your prior plan and UPP and explore retirement options.
