Application steps

If your organization has decided to join the Public Service Pension Plan, that’s wonderful.

New employers

To apply, you must provide us with the following:

  • Employer Enrolment Application
  • Resolution by your board of directors or governing authority requesting enrolment – consult these sample resolutions, for appropriate wording
  • Copy of the authority under which your organization operates, such as Certificate of Incorporation or Registration, Order-in-Council or letters patent
  • Copy of your most recent financial statements

Once you’ve been advised that your organization’s application is going forward for approval, consider completing and submitting the following forms with your application package. This will help you avoid paying late remittance fees and speed up the enrolment of employees into the plan.

If your organization offers a long-term disability (LTD) plan for employees, you can use the following form to apply to have it approved by Pension Corporation for pension purposes. If approved, any period when a plan member receives LTD benefits is considered pensionable service under the Public Service Pension Plan Rules, and no contributions are required from you or your employees who are plan members.

Expanding your plan participation terms and conditions

If your private sector organization would like to apply to expand your terms and conditions for plan partnership to include providing support work to a public function entity, you will need to write to the board, care of the corporation. In your correspondence, you should include:

  • Why you want to expand your terms and conditions
  • The proposed type of work your organization will carry out
  • Who the work will be performed for
