Retroactive Salary Increases

The CSSB recently received information from the Manitoba government regarding the retroactive earnings paid this fall. We are working to manually update member accounts and appreciate your continued patience. No action is required on your part as it relates to the retroactive salary increase. For pensioners, the CSSB expects to finish account updates by early 2023. We will share an announcement on the CSSB website when the updates are completed. For employees, your CSSB account will be updated with the new salaries by June 30, 2023. The earnings will be considered in your pension calculation if those years are among your ‘best five’ years for pensionable earnings. For more information, read the fact sheet by browsing the Publications section of our site.

All Charities Donations to Cease

Effective January 2022, pensioners will no longer be able to donate to the All Charities Campaign. The Province has advised that, “the technology and infrastructure that supported All Charities is no longer reliable. This means that the All Charities campaign can not continue as it always has.”

No action is required to cancel donations after December 2021.

Pensioners who wish to continue to donate to their favourite charities should contact those organizations directly to make arrangements. Donations to other organizations through deduction from your pension will not be possible.
