Why become a member?

GREAT REASONS TO BE A MEMBER OF THE CBC PENSIONERS NATIONAL ASSOCIATION

 

WE ARE YOUR VOICE...

 

The CBC Pensioners National Association is the sole unified voice advocating on your behalf – with the CBC, with government and in the national community of retirees.

 

  • Thanks to the vigilance and determination of the CBCPNA and its members, we have an agreement with the CBC for sharing surpluses in the Pension Fund – a significant benefit for both today’s pensioners and those who will follow us. There is power in numbers.

 

  • The CBCPNA is a strong and effective advocate in the ongoing quest for improved survivor benefits, equitable treatment of same sex partners and the extension of survivor benefits to spouses or partners married after retirement.

 

  • The CBCPNA regularly monitors and participates in the governance of the Supplementary Health Care Plan, helping to assure rates are controlled, services are maintained, and benefits are appropriate to the needs of the membership.

 

  • The CBC recognizes the CBCPNA as the vehicle for appointing pensioners’ representatives to critical corporate committees – overseeing the investment of our pension funds by the Pension Board of Trustees, defending pensioners’ interests on the Consultative Committee on Staff Benefits and assuring needed services to retirees by the Employee Assistance Plan.

 

Surveys of our membership have repeatedly cited this diligent advocacy as the first and most important benefit of membership in the Association.

 

WE OFFER YOU SUPPORT....

We provide knowledgeable telephone support / advocacy and website information to members about the pension plan, the Pension Administration Centre, health care benefits, the special assistance fund and a wide range of retirement issues.  Our National Office is a great source of information and advice. We can be reached by phone, letter or email.

 

WE KEEP YOU IN TOUCH....

Our regional groups organize numerous social events promoting contact with other CBC retirees. National and regional newsletters provide members with pension and retiree news allowing members to keep in touch with national issues and with each other.

 

WE OFFER YOU ACCESS TO AFFINITY PROGRAMS

Our members have unique access to home, auto and travel insurance plans designed for retirees and very competitively priced.  We continue to seek out opportunities to add to our inventory of affinity programs.

 

AND MEMBERSHIP IS A GOOD INVESTMENT....

The CBCPNA's important work is funded by low monthly membership dues - just 0.32% of a member's gross pension payment. For every $1,000 of monthly pension, a member would contribute $3.20.  To join us call 1-877-361-9242 or click on this link: http://retraitessrcen.distantia.ca/signup.php.
