​Meet your CSS Retirement and Pension Advisory Team

​Helping you through your retirement journey

Your CSS Advisory team - Rhonda Rodh, Marilyn Shipley, Jessica Kreutzer, Shontelle Flaman, Maureen Richards and Rachelle Camsell (left to right) - they are here to help you every step of the way. 

When you contact the CSS Pension Plan, you will likely speak to one of our Retirement and Pension Advisors, Associates or Specialists who are often your first point of contact. They will answer any questions you have regarding your pension plan or retirement options, for example: 

  • Have I saved enough for retirement? 

  • Can you explain what my retirement income options are? 

  • Can you guide me to determine how my funds should be invested leading up to retirement or in retirement? 

The Advisors can also prepare a customized retirement plan for you which includes all your sources of retirement income including your funds in the Plan, RRSPs, TFSAs, CPP and OAS, along with your spouse's sources of retirement income. The Associates support the Advisors and you as you navigate your pension and retirement journey. They do not receive a commission, so you can be confident they are helping you make decisions that are truly in your best interest. 

If you are an employer member of CSS, you may have questions about how to support and improve the financial wellness and retirement security of your employees (our CSS members). Our Advisory team is also here for helping employer’s with any pension and retirement wellness questions. 

"If there is one thing our Advisory team all have in common, it is that they genuinely enjoy helping our employer and employee members," says Tami Dove, Director, Member Experience. 

We encourage you to contact CSS and speak to our Advisory team regarding your retirement and pension needs. Arrange a time to meet over the phone, virtually or set up an in-person meeting.

Your CSS Advisory Team on a more personal level

"I absolutely love it. I love working with the members and meeting the members during our Retirement Income Options (RIO) workshops and other information sessions," she says. "There are so many different situations, so every day is unique and interesting."

Rhonda understands it can be overwhelming to make decisions about retirement, so she gets excited when members reach out who are nearing retirement to help them realize they are not alone when it comes to making decisions.

In her spare time, Rhonda loves to read and is a frequent visitor to the Saskatoon Public Library. She also enjoys spending time with family and travelling.

She has attained a wealth of knowledge to help you through your retirement journey. To add to her resume, she completed the Canadian Pension Certificate Program in 2022.

She also completed her Pension Plan Administration Certificate (PPAC), which provides her a strong knowledge in registered pension plans, investments and government legislation among other pension-specific topics.

“Working for a co-operative prior to coming to CSS taught me the values of a co-operative, like member-first service, transparency, integrity and accountability,” she said. “A cooperative is learning to work in the best interest in the member and not ourselves and give them a wholesome experience with all the options and honest advice. 

“CSS is a friendly environment. I love working from home and enjoy being in contact with our members every day,” she added.  

When she is not working, Shontelle enjoys listening to music, watching movies, game nights with her kids and friends, and keeping busy with her two dogs and two cats.
