Substitute Teachers

​Participation in the Teachers’ Pension Plan is not permitted for substitute teachers while they are employed as substitute teachers. That means that no pension contributions are deducted from the salary you receive for substitute teaching. However, substitute service provided on or after May 1, 1971 can be purchased at a later date.

​You can find out more about the rules for purchasing your substitute service in the publication Purcha​sing Service, as well as in the Increasing Your Pension​ section of the we​bsite.
