2019 Annual Pension Statements now available on Employee Self-Service

Your statement summarizes the pension benefits you have earned to June 30, 2019. Remember that since 2012 statements are now provided exclusively online on ESS.

Proposed Conversion to the University Pension Plan Ontario (UPP)

The University is proposing to convert the University of Toronto Pension Plan (the “Plan”) to the University Pension Plan Ontario (UPP) with an anticipated conversion date of July 1, 2021. An application for approval of the conversion will be submitted to the Financial Services Regulatory Authority by the end of December 2019. The UPP will be a multi-employer jointly sponsored pension plan and the legal Administrator of the UPP will be the UPP Board of Trustees rather than the University.


The projections of your pension entitlement contained in this annual statement are based solely on the provisions of the Plan assuming the Plan terms continue in effect indefinitely. The projections do not take into account the proposed conversion to the UPP. Any projection including service beyond the anticipated conversion date of July 1, 2021 does not take into account the provisions of the UPP and should not be relied upon for any reason. If the proposed conversion receives regulatory approval, you will begin to accrue a pension based on the provisions of the UPP for service on and after the conversion date. The terms of the UPP are different in a number of ways than the terms of the Plan. Please contact upp@utoronto.ca for updates about the UPP.
