Frequently Asked Questions

The frequently asked questions (FAQs) provide answers to general questions we have received about how to interpret or apply the federal pension plan legislation. These FAQs complement the Pension Members' Guide as well as the information found on our website on various topics related to a defined benefit plan, a defined contribution plan and a pooled registered pension plan.

The FAQs do not address plan specific scenarios. Plan administrators should obtain appropriate legal and actuarial advice on how the legislation and guidelines affect their particular pension plan.
