Pension and Retirement
Management and Professional Staff
Most Management and Professional Staff participate in the Universities Academic Pension Plan (UAPP). If your position is eligible to participate in the UAPP, you are automatically enrolled from your date of hire.
As part of the online self-service benefits enrolment, you will complete a UAPP Designation of Spouse and Non-Spouse Beneficiary Form form for the UAPP.
After you print and complete the applicable beneficiary form, return the signed original form as soon as possible to Human Resources - Total Rewards via campus mail. Alternatively, you can email a scan to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Within a month from the date of hire, a welcome email is sent by the UAPP administrator to new pension plan participants. The email details the features of the UAPP website including how to access the Retirement Planner, a secure on-line tool where members can estimate their pension benefits.
