Making Voluntary Contributions

In addition to your Required Contributions to your pension plan, Western allows members to make additional monthly contributions that can enhance your retirement income. It’s important to understand how these Voluntary Contributions work, and how they can help you meet your retirement goals.

Our Pension Plan accepts direct transfers from RRSP accounts, as well as certain types of transfers from other pension plans. If you have money at a former employer, or RRSPs outside Western that you would like to transfer into your account please contact us.

For more information or assistance making Voluntary Contributions, please contact the Human Resources Department at or phone 519-661-2194. On campus call extension 82194.
