Retiree Pension and Benefits

Please note that retiree benefits have changed, and new optional benefits are now available, with the University’s move to a new insurance provider on July 1st,  2020.  As information becomes available, we will post it here.  You will also find links to important information for retirees, such as the Retirees Benefits Booklet.  

Pension and Benefits updates are reported in our Newsletter

Latest Pension Plan Returns:

Month of May, 2020:  1.8%

Month of April, 2020: 6.5%

Month of March 2020: -8.2%

After a disastrous month of March, the pension rebounded during the month of April with a net return of 6.5%, then ticked up slightly in May. This brings the overall return, 9 months into the pension plan year, to slightly positive territory (1.1%).

June 2020 returns will be available in early August.

From time to time, Queen's Human Resources publishes the "Retiree Benefits Booklet" summarizing the group medical and life insurance benefits for Queen's retirees.  Printed copies of this booklet are available from HR in the Stewart-Pollack Wing of Fleming Hall  or can be seen by clicking on this link
