B.C. LABOURERS’ PENSION PLAN
The LiUNA Local 1611 Pension Plan (B.C. Labourers’ Pension Plan) is financially strong and more than 100% funded as a going concern and on a solvency basis. The normal retirement age for the Plan is age 65, however early retirement is available as early as 55.
HOW THE PLAN WORKS
In order for you to become a member of the plan, the plan must receive at least 700 hours within two Plan years. For further details please see “Joining the Plan” details in the Pension Plan booklet.
The Plan is financed entirely by contributions made by participating employers. The contribution rates that employers make are set in the collective agreements. You are not allowed to make direct contributions to the plan.
For pension service earned after Jan. 1, 2007, members earn credit for each hour worked. Employer contributions are pro-rated to the Plan’s standard rate of $2.50 per hour. If your employer contributes more than $2.50 per hour, pension hours are pro-rated up. If your employer contributes less than $2.50 per hour, pension hours are pro-rated down. A pension benefit of $0.03 is earned for each hour of pension credit given.
For example if you work:
2,000 hours for an employer who contributes $1.50 per hour on your behalf, your pension benefit credit will be: 2,000 hours x $1.50/$2.75 = 1,090 hours credited; 1,090 hours x $0.03 earned per hour = $32.70 of monthly pension.
2,000 hours for an employer who contributes $2.75 per hour on your behalf, your pension benefit credit will be: 2,000 hours x $0.03 earned per hour = $60.00 of monthly pension.
2,000 hours for an employer who contributes $3.00 per hour on your behalf, your pension benefit credit will be: 2,000 hours x $3.00/$2.75 =approx 2,180 hours credited; 2,180 hours x $0.03 earned per hour = $65.40 of monthly pension.
2, 000 hours for an employer who contributes $4.00 per hour on your behalf, your pension benefit credit will be: 2,000 hours x $4.00/$2.75 = approx. 2,910 hours credited; 2,910 hours x $0.03 earned per hour = $87.30.00 of monthly pension.
