Welcome to your online source for pension information from the Teachersí Pension Plan.
The plan serves more than 92,000 active, inactive and retired members and their employers in British Columbia. Members include teachers, vice-principals, principals and superintendents from school boards across the province. Plan membership is broken down as follows:
more than 44,900 active members contributing to the plan
more than 12,000 inactive members (members who are no longer with a plan employer but have contributions with the plan)
more than 35,000 retired members
The plan holds assets of more than $24 billion. The Teachersí Pension Plan is the ninth-largest defined benefit pension plan in Canada, according to data collected by Benefits Canada magazine.
On April 1, 2017, the extended health and dental benefits provider for retired members changed to Green Shield Canada.
The plan is changing on January 1, 2018, to make the plan more equitable for all members, and to modernize the plan in response to a changing work environment.
