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 extended health care and voluntary dental if you retire directly from active employment to a pension.

WorkSafeBC currently pays the full coverage cost of your Pacific Blue Cross extended health care. This benefit is not guaranteed.

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