Supplementary Retirement Benefit


This is a taxable, lump-sum benefit provided to individuals who were in receipt of Earnings Loss Benefits on a long term basis. It is provided in recognition of the lower pension plan contributions you may have made.

Do I qualify?

As a Veteran, you may qualify if you were in receipt of the Earnings Loss Benefit and that benefit has ended.

As a survivor, you may qualify if you were in receipt of the Earnings Loss Benefit for survivors and that benefit has ended.
