Income Policy

The Longevity Pension Fund provides retirees with income for life through monthly distributions. How much money you get a month will be evaluated and adjusted each year based on returns and redemptions from the year before. We’ll give you 60 days’ notice if there is any change.

Income policy steps to managing the distributions

Step 1

Similar to how a pension is managed, we take a funding-level approach to compare the Fund’s assets with the present value of expected future liabilities.

Step 2

The long-term funding-level target is 100%; however, this may be higher in the earlier years of a cohort to provide additional stability in distribution levels.

Step 3

The distribution levels are adjusted annually to bring the funding level to its target, which ensures the cohorts are adequately funded to provide income for life.
