Online delivery of RIO workshops

In lieu of the in-person RIO workshops, we are planning to deliver a series of online workshops this fall to provide members who are nearing retirement (ages 50 and older) with in-depth information about the retirement income options available to them, including pensions, annuities, Variable Benefit payments, LIFs and PRRIFs*. The online workshop will provide you with the same information that you would expect to receive during the in-person workshop.

Please check back for the online RIO workshop schedule and registration information in mid-September. 

We are actively monitoring information from provincial, federal, and global health authorities and adapting as the situation continues to evolve. We are committed to keeping you informed and will provide updates about how we are responding to COVID-19 at

To do our part to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and comply with social distancing measures, our office is currently closed to visitors until further notice. Although we are unable to meet with you in-person at this time, we are still available to assist you over the phone or email during our usual hours of 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (CST) Monday to Friday if you wish to contact us about your pension investments.

Thank you for your continued co-operation as we work through these challenges together. 

*PRRIFs available in SK and MB only.
