Early retirement

Retiring before the normal retirement age will affect your pension. Here are the key points to consider.

Health and dental benefits in retirement

At retirement you are eligible for post-retirement health benefits including Medical Services Plan, extended health and dental if you retire directly from active employment to a pension.

WorkSafeBC will currently pay the full coverage cost of your BC Medical Services Plan and Pacific Blue Cross extended health care. These benefits are not guaranteed.

You can also apply for optional dental coverage; however, you would be responsible for paying the monthly premiums.
