A GUIDE TO YOUR DEFINED BENEFIT PENSION PLAN

Vesting

Vesting plays a large part in the Pension Plan, so it is important that you understand how it works.

FAST FACTS

• Generally, you earn one “Year of Vesting Service” for each calendar year in which you work at least 1600 hours in covered employment.

• You become fully (100 percent) vested when you have five Years of Vesting Service.

• Once fully vested, your right to your pension benefit cannot be taken away.
