Retiring from UVic

Are you getting ready to take on the next adventure in your life? For some, it may be difficult to determine what your finances will really look like after employment.  While Pension Services is unable to provide financial advice, we can provide information on your pension and the options that are available to you.

In the Combination Plan, you must be at least 55 years of age (the earliest retirement age) to be eligible for a pension. However, early retirement reductions may apply. 

Preparing for retirement

The first thing to do is to obtain a retirement package from Pension Services.  To allow us enough time to serve you better, please refer to the Obtain a retirement package section of this website and submit your application approximately 3 months before your expected retirement date

Please note that applications are free, non-obligatory, and fully confidential.  We also offer individual consultations by appointment.

Please also contact Human Resources (compensation and benefits) to discuss other benefits and considerations related to retirement.
