What happens if you leave your job?

If you leave your job with an employer participating in the plan, you will need to make some decisions about your pension.

When your employment ends

If you leave your job at WorkSafeBC, you are no longer an active member of the WorkSafeBC Pension Plan. However you have a number of options depending on your age and contributory service.

You will have some important decisions to make, which may include:

  • transferring your service to another pension plan
  • taking your pension at a later time, making you an inactive member
  • transferring your funds to a locked-in retirement savings vehicle
  • applying to receive a lifetime monthly pension

If you left your job before September 30, 2015, please contact the plan.
