Welcome to CSSB’s New Website!

Our member survey in 2018 told us that our website was the most widely used service that CSSB provides, and although the satisfaction level with the website was respectable, it received the lowest score of the services considered. Members told us that there was room for improvement in how the site was organized and in its overall appeal. We listened and are pleased to welcome you to the new CSSB website. The new site has an updated look, but everything you're looking for is still here and should be easier to find.

July 2021 Pension Payments Include 2020 Cost-of-Living Increase

The Board approved a 0.49% Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) for eligible pension recipients, which will be included in the July 2021 pension payments. 

This increase is equal to 2/3 of the increase in the Canadian Consumer Price Index for 2020, which was 0.73%. A history of CSSB COLA percentages since 1977 can be found here.

This increase also applies to eligible members with a deferred account.

The actuary has continued to express concern that, unless changes are made, the Account will not be able to meet the target of granting additional COLA’s each year at the rate of 2/3 of the increase in the Consumer Price Index. The Board shares this concern. 

The Superannuation and Insurance Liaison Committee, which represents plan members in negotiating plan benefits, is studying the sustainability of the COLA Account.
