General Synod Pension Plan–Update
On January 1, 2022, all active members of the Lay Retirement Plan (LRP) joined the General Synod Pension Plan (GSPP)
ACTION REQUIRED: For all active members who were previously members of the Lay Retirement Plan, the GSPP enrolment package was mailed to your address that we received from Canada Life. If you have not already done so, please fill out, sign, and mail the personalized enrolment form back as soon as possible.
If you are interested in transferring your LRP account balance into the GSPP, please use our buy back calculator to get an estimate of how much lifetime pension you can purchase under the GSPP.
Details for accessing this calculator will be sent along with your GSPP enrolment package in November 2021. Please keep an eye out for further correspondence from the Pension Office and be sure to respond promptly.
In order to help curtail the spread of COVID-19, the Pension Office staff are coming to the office on a rotational basis as necessary. The rest of the time they are working from home, in which case they may not have immediate access to voice mail messages. We attempt to return phone calls as soon as possible, but please be patient during these uncertain times.
You may contact the office by e-mail at [email protected] or fax to 416-968-7689. You may also contact the individual staff members (see staff list below). Please do not communicate any confidential information by email due to the inherent insecurity of email communications transmitted via the internet. This includes sending forms that contain personal or confidential information.
We will continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 and provide updates, when available. We apologize for any inconvenience.
On January 1, 2022, all active members of the Lay Retirement Plan (LRP) will join the General Synod Pension Plan (GSPP). Find out more about the GSPP and the transition process.
