When do I Become a Member?

You become a Member of the Plan when your Employer remits 1,200 hours to the LPF on your behalf or if you work for that employer for two consecutive years where your earnings exceeded 35% of the Year's Maximum Pensionable Earnings (YMPE) in each year.

After accumulating 1,200 hours of pension contributions you automatically become entitled to a benefit when you either retire, terminate membership with the Plan, become disabled or die.
