Pension Plan

A defined benefit plan, the Pension Plan guarantees a monthly retirement benefit for your lifetime (and your surviving spouse’s lifetime). This means you can never outlive your money. The Pension Plan requires 14% of salary to be contributed which would be an employer contribution of 8% and an employee contribution of 6% to make up the full 14% of salary.
