Under the OPSEU Pension Plan, members may continue to work for a participating employer, past the age of 65 and continue to contribute to the Plan and earn additional pension credit. However, under the federal Income Tax Act, members cannot continue to contribute to a registered pension plan beyond the end of the year in which they reach age 71. At that time, the individual’s membership in and contributions to the Plan must end, and pension payments must begin.
