The SPP and working past age 65

If you decide to continue working at age 65 and beyond, you need to decide if you would like to:

  1. Continue to make contributions and accrue pensionable service; or
  2. Stop making contributions and start your pension immediately or on the first of the month in a later month.

For either option, you must start your pension by the end of the year in which you turn age 71.

If you choose the second option, there will be changes to your extended health and dental benefits. For more information, please contact the Benefits team at UBC Human Resources.
