Member Update, March 15 2023
The following important message from the DBplus team and your employer is shared at the request of your union Local.
Dear Local Y046 Employees:
We are excited to announce that your purchase package is on the way! (Mailed on February 27, 2023)
As a member of the CAAT Plan, you can now increase your DBplus pension by making a pension purchase.
While waiting to receive your purchase package, we encourage you to visit the DBplus purchase webpage, explicitly designed for the City of Whitehorse employees. You will get access to information that will help you decide if a purchase is right for you, such as FAQs and links to online tools.
From this page, dive into CAAT’s DBplus purchase resource pages to learn about the three pension purchase stages:
Learn (understand your options)
Return (submit your forms)
Earn (complete your purchase)
Before you make your purchase decision, plan to attend an information session to learn more.
We invite you to attend one of the four 90-minute service purchase–group presentations facilitated by CAAT Pension Plan on March 28th & 29th.
These sessions will ensure that you have a strong foundational understanding of the process and will answer any questions you may have. A limited number of 20-minute in-person one-on-one consultations will also be available for sign-up. We highly encourage you to attend a group session prior to attending the one-on-one consultation in order to tailor the meeting to your specific needs.
If you are not able to book an in-person one–on–one consultation, additional virtual one-on-one consultations will be made available from March 28th to April 28th .
Please visit https://www.caatpension.ca/members/whitehorse to register.
We are looking forward to seeing you at one of the group sessions. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please, don't hesitate to get in touch with [email protected]
