The Universities Academic Pension Plan takes very seriously the COVID-19 outbreak and all related advisories of the Chief Medical Officer of Alberta. As such, the Trustees’ Office has implemented measures to do our part to help control the spread of the disease. Staff are now working remotely and the office is closed to visitors until further notice. The UAPP Administration Centre remains operational and the plan will continue to make pension payments on time. The goal remains to provide high quality service to members and employers.
UAPP pensions remain secure and safe despite volatile market conditions related to the outbreak. Pensioners receiving pensions via cheque who may be concerned about delivery disruptions may want to consider switching to direct deposit by contacting CIBC Mellon directly at https://www.cibcmellon.com/en/retiree-assistance/index.jsp#ir/direct-deposit.
