​​Who we are

What do we do?​​

The Co-operative Superannuation Society (CSS) Pension Plan provides competitive, value-added retirement products and services exclusively to co-operative and credit union employees.

Pioneered in Saskatchewan in 1939, we are one of the oldest and largest defined contribution (DC) pension plans in Canada with over $5B in assets. Today we’ve grown to serve over 300 employers and 50,000 current and past co-operative and credit union employees across eight provinces and territories.​

How do we do it?

We’re a member-owned co-operative ourselves. 

Democratically controlled by the Co-operative Superannuation Society – a non-profit pension society that is our trustee and administrator – our members have a voice in everything that we do. 

With their direction, our dedicated staff run the Plan efficiently from our office in Saskatoon, SK.​

Why do we do it?

Our purpose is to empower our members to achieve financial security in retirement.

We do this by providing friendly, personal, transparent and non-conflicted advice within a commission-free environment.​


To provide competitive, value-added retirement products and services through a democratically controlled organization for the benefit of members.​


To be the preferred pension organization for 
employers and their employees.


Our core values support member focus in Plan decision making: Service, fairness, integrity, accountability and transparency.​
