We are pleased to announce that AUPE continues to offer ONLINE pension information sessions with the help of Alberta Pensions Services Corporation (APSC).

Notwithstanding the COVID crisis, AUPE continues to strive to reach out to its members in order to communicate with them, serve them and offer to them the best of online Union education. While our in-person events have been cancelled, we would like to invite you to take your pension session online. These sessions are available to AUPE members.

Pensions are important to AUPE members and their families. Alberta Pension Services (APSC) administers the Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP) and the Local Authorities Pension Plan (LAPP), both of which help secure many AUPE members for their retirement.

AUPE and APSC are committed to helping members learn about their pensions and plan for retirement.
