​​​​​​RIO workshops 

Do you want to know more about pensions, annuities, Variable Benefit payments, LIFs and PRRIFs*? If so, you should attend a Retirement Income Options (RIO) workshop. 

If you have a spouse (married or common-law), we strongly encourage him/her to also attend. This workshop is designed for members who are nearing retirement (ages 50 and older). 
You must register in advance to attend a RIO workshop. 

​​To register for a RIO in your jurisdiction, complete the RIO registration form below.

*PRRIFs available in SK and MB only.

RIO workshop videos

The CSS Pension Plan is committed to ensuring the health and well-being of our members, their families and communities. 

In response to ongoing uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, we have created an online version of the workshop consisting of the five modules below in lieu of the in-person workshops. (Note: Modules 3 and 4 are jurisdiction specific. Please watch the applicable version of Modules 3 and 4 for your jurisdiction.) 

The online workshop is designed 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*. It will also provide you with an overview of CPP and OAS benefits, as well as personal savings vehicles available from financial institutions such as RRSPs and TFSAs.

The online workshop will provide you with the same information that you would expect to receive during the in-person workshop.

For more information about our response to COVID-19, please
