Pension Plan Information
The Teachers' Pension Plan website has many resources that allow you to:
- Attend an information seminar and get to know your pension plan; view the schedules, register online, learn more about the seminars, and view the seminar handbooks.
- Calculate your future pension online. This pension estimator gives you a better understanding of your future pension payments. Use this tool to estimate how much it will cost to purchase a period of service. It's perfect for those who’ve taken a leave of absence or maternity leave, or worked for periods without being credited with service. The estimator tells you how much your pension will increase and also helps you apply for your purchase if you’re eligible.
