Retiring from UBC and pension information

There is excellent information on the UBC Pension Plan website and the retirement pages have information on UBC’s retirement and survivor benefits program as well as other retirement privileges that will assist your employee with their planning.

When an employee provides notice that they will be retiring, cover off all outstanding work-related items prior to your employee's last day. This includes ensuring the return of any UBC property including keys and equipment. There is also a resignation checklist on the employee website leaving UBC page that will remind your employee of personal items they may wish to look into before leaving the university.

In addition, employees can refer to the relevant collective agreement or terms and conditions of employment to understand the specific provisions that apply when they decide to retire.
