Questions about Box 28 on your T4A?

If Box 28 on your 2022 T4A statement from CSSB indicates an amount, it likely means you received part of the group life insurance fund surplus. This money was shared among eligible pensioners. The funds were distributed along with your monthly pension in May 2022. The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) advised that the surplus is not considered pension income because the funds are the result of good investments. CSSB must report the money paid and you are required to pay taxes on it. If you have questions about the taxable surplus, please contact CRA or discuss it with your accountant.

Retroactive Salary Increases Update

The CSSB is still working to manually update thousands of member accounts and appreciate your continued patience. No action is required by members. For pensioners, the CSSB expects to finish account updates by spring 2023. Rather than waiting for every account to be updated before adjusting member pension payments, we will apply pension adjustments to completed member accounts starting February 2023. No matter when your account update is completed, any change to your monthly pension will be paid retroactive to your date of retirement. For employees, your CSSB account will be updated with the new salaries by June 30, 2023. For more information, read the fact sheet by browsing the Publications section of our site.
