Membership

In most cases, membership in the Plan is voluntary for full-time, part-time, term and casual employees at any time during the first two years of employment. 

However, if you are a member of the Plan with another Participating Employer or you were a member of the Plan within 31 days prior to new employment with a Participating Employer, you must join the Plan on the first day of the new employment as you are considered to have maintained membership in the Plan. 

If you are employed with two or more Participating Employers and you become a member of the Plan with one of the employers, either voluntarily or based on HEPP Plan Text requirements, you must contribute to the Plan with all of your employers that participate in the Plan.

Note: It is a legislative requirement for employees to participate in the Plan upon completing two years of continuous employment. Once you start contributing to the Plan, whether on your first day of employment, during your first two years of employment, or upon completion of two years of continuous employment, you may not terminate your membership until the earlier of termination of employment, retirement, death or reaching age 65.

If you are already receiving a monthly pension from the Plan and become employed with a Participating Employer, you are not eligible to contribute to the Plan and must complete a Return to Work Participation/Waiver Form

If you are already receiving a monthly pension from another pension plan and become employed with a Participating Employer, you have the option to join the Plan at any time during your first two years of employment; however, you must join after two years of continuous employment.
