Teachers' Pension Plan
The Nova Scotia Teachers’ Pension Plan (TPP) is one of the largest public sector pension plans in the Province. The TPP is a registered defined benefit pension plan that offers you a lifetime pension benefit when you retire.
The TPP was created by an act of the Legislative Assembly in 1949. It covers all licensed teachers employed in the public school system, as well as the Atlantic Provinces Special Education Authority and the Nova Scotia Teachers’ Union (NSTU). It also covers most instructional staff at the Nova Scotia Community College.
Teachers’ Pension Plan Trustee Inc. (TPPTI) is the Trustee of your Teachers’ Pension Plan. The TPPTI was established in 2006 under a joint trust agreement between the NSTU and the Province of Nova Scotia. The TPPTI is the Plan’s fiduciary, responsible for the Plan operation and management of its investment assets.
Under the direction of the TPPTI, the Nova Scotia Pension Services Corporation administers the pension benefits and investment assets of the TPP. We also provide member and employer pension services.
