COVID-19 has impacted the world in ways we could not have predicted. For a lot of people that means job loss, changes to living situations or at the least, working remotely. It's more important than ever to ensure we have your updated contact information, including a personal email address.
If you've registered with MyPension, you can hop online and let us know when something changes in your life, like your address, phone number or email address. MyPension has also become a more central part of how we deliver services to our members, with more enhancements to come in the future. Registering for MyPension now will allow ATRF to serve you even better down the road.
In fact, if you haven't already done so, you should provide ATRF with your personal email address instead of your work account. This will avoid any email firewall issues we may encounter with your employer and will help if there are any breaks in your employment or when you transition into retirement.
ATRF should also be notified if there are changes in your life, such as:
- You decide to return to teaching after you've retired
- Your nominee, pension partner or beneficiary has passed away
- You get married, divorced or separated
- You change careers and leave teaching
- You move, especially to a different province or country
If you are registered on MyPension you can update your contact information, apply for pensions, purchases or terminations, and also get personal information about your pension, including benefit calculations.
