Vested MEPP members are eligible to receive an unreduced pension on or after their 60th birthday. Retirement with a reduced or unreduced pension is possible as early as the age of 55, provided certain age and pensionable service requirements are met.
If you leave your funds in the Plan and then re-join before starting your pension, new pensionable service will be added to your existing service, increasing the amount of pension you receive.
MEPP has transfer agreements with several other provincial and federal public sector pension plans. If you join an employer who participates in one of those plans, you might be able to transfer your MEPP service to the new plan.
Please note that if you are entitled to an unreduced pension, you are not able to transfer your benefit out of MEPP.
