SFU Pension Plan
The SFU Academic Staff Pension Plan is a defined-contribution plan – that is, rather than providing a pre-determined benefit upon returning, each member’s pension is based on the amount s/he paid into the plan over the course of her/ his career. The basic benefit is the equivalent of 10% of salary contributed by the University. Members are not required to contribute additionally, but are able to do so should they wish to increase the benefit.
For information on the Academic Staff Pension plan, including a list of the trustees should you wish to contact them, please see: http://www.sfu.ca/human-resources/faculty/pensions.html
