Additional key messages

  • Supported by the overall strength of the Plan, this increase builds on previous ones and comes at no additional cost for Plan members and employers.
  • The table below shows the estimated annual increase in a full-time member’s lifetime pension based on their average earnings with a full year of service earned in 2023. We encourage you to use the information in this table to communicate the impact of the benefit improvement to your members.
Average earnings Estimated annual increase to a lifetime pension
$40,000 $200
$50,000 $250
$60,000 $300


  • For example, a full-time member with average earnings of $60,000 and a full year of service earned in 2023 can expect to receive an extra $300 per year as a result of this benefit improvement. If that same member received their pension for 20 years in retirement, they would receive an additional $6,000 in pension income!
  • This increase is just one of the ways that HOOPP is adding value and supporting its members. The Board has also announced that contribution rates will remain unchanged until at least the end of 2026. HOOPP’s contribution rates have not changed since 2004 – that’s more than 20 years of stability for members and employers.
