The Municipal Pension Plan, our pension plan, is the largest public pension plan in British Columbia, the sixth-largest pension plan in the country. With representation on, or connections with other committees, such as the Municipal Pension Plan Board of Trustees (MPBT), the Municipal Employees Pension Committee (MEPC), the Municipal Employees Pension Advisory Committee (MEPAC), the Health Benefit Trust, and other Public Pension Retiree Associations in BC, we have the opportunity to have input to the decisions that are made concerning our pensions, benefits, and areas of concern for retirees.
Why Join the MPRA
At the November 16, 2022, meeting of the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees, approval was given to a cost-of-living adjustment of 6.9% effective January 1, 2023.
“2023 Cost-of-Living Adjustment: The board approved a cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) to regular pensions in pay of 6.9 per cent, effective January 1, 2023. This is the equivalent to the increase in the Canadian consumer price index (CPI) between September 2021 and September 2022.”
We want to thank the Municipal Pension Board of Trustees for recognizing the impact of the increasing Consumer Price Index on retirees in making this decision.
Annual dues are $22.00 per member and $40.00 per couple. New members who receive a MPP Pension will be offered a free membership for the calendar year in which they apply. These members must provide their PID number for automatic dues deduction in all subsequent years. Your PID Number can be found on your Municipal Pension Plan Statement or on your Pacific Blue Cross Card.
