New subject of the CAPE discussion platform: Changes to the Public Service Pension Plan

November 29, 2012

Under Bill C-45, the federal government intends to amend the Public Service Pension Plan in two ways: By increasing employee Pension Plan contributions until they reach 50%, with the other 50% being paid by the employer (the split is currently 40/60) and; by raising the retirement age to 65.

We would like you to consider and comment on the following questions on the CAPE discussion platform:

1- Raising the employee contribution level to 50%: Do you support this action? Are there any other possible funding methods?

2- Raising the retirement age: Is 65 acceptable? Does any aspect of this change discriminate against new employees?
