The Saskatchewan Healthcare Employees’ Pension Plan (SHEPP)
The Saskatchewan Healthcare Employees’ Pension Plan (SHEPP) administers a defined benefit pension Plan for over 33,000 healthcare workers, 65 employers, and more than 12,000 retired members and their beneficiaries. SHEPP is a defined benefit plan, where your pension is determined by a formula based on your highest average contributory earnings and years of participation, or credited service. Membership is mandatory if you work as a permanent full-time or permanent part-time employee of a SHEPP participating employer. If you are a non-permanent or casual employee, please review the SHEPP member booklet which can be found on the SHEPP website or contact their office directly. SUN members who work in facilities where the SUN/SAHO, SUN/Extendicare, or SUN/All Nations Healing Hospital collective agreements are in place will be members of this plan. (The exception will be those members that were hired by the Regina General Hospital prior to 1999 and those members that became SUN members in 1997 as a result of the Dorsey Commission decision.) SHEPP has a service called SHEPP Web where members of the plan can obtain a PIN# (Personal Identification Number) from SHEPP, and then use the SHEPP website to review their own pension accruals, and project future pension income based on their own plans to retire.
