Who can become a member?

Membership is open to anyone receiving or who will receive a pension from the federal public service, the RCMP or the Canadian Forces, to federal Judges and to non-pensioned veterans. As well, anyone who receives a survivor benefit from a pensioner mentioned above is also eligible.        

                                                        

What does membership cost?  

  • Just $48.96 per year for an individual. This amount helps support the work for better pensions for all Canadians and provides full access to all benefits.
  • Just $63.60 per year for a couple. Double your clout for just $15 more and provide a membership to a spouse or partner. Both are eligible for all member benefits, including our exceptional travel insurance, access to our advocacy team, volunteering, a vote on how we operate and even running for office. Most importantly, it doubles your support for the work of protecting pensions.                   


How do I sign up?

Joining is easy:

  • Pay by monthly pension withdrawal. This is the most popular choice. You can have your membership dues deducted monthly from your superannuation payments by downloading and returning a form authorizing Public Works and Government Services Canada to do so. Participation in deduction of dues at source is voluntary and can be revoked at any time by notifying the Association’s National Office. The amount works out to $4.08 or $5.30 per month on direct deductions at source (DDS) from your pension. (Unfortunately this method of payment is not yet applicable to judges' pensions and judges' survivor allowances).
  • Pay by Credit Card. You can pay your membership fee annually by credit card and get instant access to all member benefits. 
  • Pay by Cheque. You can also pay by cheque if you prefer; simply download our application form and return it with your cheque.
