For the most part, retroactive earnings are included in your pensionable earnings. The earnings will be considered in your pension calculation if those years are among your ‘best five’ years for pensionable earnings. No action is required on your part as it relates to your pension or insurance when you receive a retroactive salary increase.

For pensioners, the CSSB won’t have information on how your pension may change until several months after the retroactive earnings are paid.

For employees, the CSSB won’t have information on how your pension may change until late next year.
