Post-Retirement Group Plan
GSI has sponsored a group plan for former members (and spouses) of the ELCIC Pension Plan as an alternate option for your pension account balance when you are ready to start your pension income. The group plan might give you more flexibility and lower fees than the offerings on the retail market.
The post-retirement group plan offers LIF/RRIF products and a variety of investment choices approved by the GSI Board in compliance with the Statement of Investment Policies & Procedures for the post retirement account. The list of investment options can be found on our website.
GSI has partnered with Eckler to assist you in transitioning to retirement and choosing the group plan products that would work best for you. If you would like to know more about this please call James Ralko at Eckler toll free at 1-877-988-1581 for a brochure and fund information. Eckler can also answer you questions regarding your government benefits, RRSP’s and taxes.
Alternatively, if you would like to purchase an annuity, Eckler, at your request, can gather market quotes from the life companies and assist you in making your selection and getting you set up. Just call the toll free number above or contact GSI.
