On date of termination.
Within 6 weeks of termination, APS will provide you with an options package. Please ensure APS has your current address. Further information is available at www.pspp.ca.
If you had a leave of absence in the year that you terminated, you will be sent a Notice of Cost by Alberta Pension Services. This purchase must be paid in full prior to the deadline outlined on the Notice of Cost and may delay your options package.
If you were a combined pensionable service employee, you will also be receiving a termination package from Conduent HR Services (Pension Administrator for the Universities Academic Pension Plan).
If you are currently purchasing prior service or a leave of absence, the outstanding balance is due as of your termination date. In order to allow for processing time, you have 60 days from your date of termination to provide payment in full to our office to ensure it is processed within the timeframe allowed. If you choose not to purchase prior service in full, the account will be closed and any service purchased will be credited to your account. This service may not be available for you to purchase in the future.
In order for Alberta Pension Services (APS) to process your pension options, proof of age documents are required by Alberta Pension Services. These can be either a passport or birth certificate. Name change documents are also required if the name used today is different than indicated on the birth certificate or passport – ie. marriage certificate.
