NOTE: The Union does not register for the Pre-Retirement Seminars. Employers are required to submit names by October 3 at the latest. Members may wish to contact their principal/supervisor on how and when they can submit their names to attend a seminar this school year.
The Teachers' Provincial and APSEA agreements allow a teacher in their last five (5) years to register with the Employer for a pre-retirement seminar.
The Union provides a two day seminar. The topics include the features of the Teachers' Pension Plan; money management in retirement; Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security; Retired Teachers Organizations; wills and estate planning, insurance, service awards and the psychological aspects of retirement. Participants of the seminar also get to meet with the representative of the Nova Scotia Pension Services Corporation to receive individual information about their pension.
