To PEBA’s valued members and stakeholders,

As the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to create challenges worldwide, I want to share with you how PEBA is addressing its operations and support to members and employers.

As a pension administrator, PEBA represents 100,000 members and over 900 employers across numerous pension and benefit plans in Saskatchewan and our principal concern is now on the safety of our employees, prioritizing the most critical operations such as pension payroll and actively monitoring and managing our plan investments. We are also focusing our resources so that we continue to remain available to serve our members and stakeholders during this challenging time despite travel restrictions, social distancing and other challenges that impact our traditional ways of doing business.

PEBA has implemented the best practices of business continuity processes and we remain prepared to serve our members during this time, however our methods of support are changing to reflect the new pandemic guidelines.

Effective immediately, we have postponed all scheduled member workshops and presentations to plan employers in order to follow the social distancing advice issued by the Province. We are also limiting engagement with our members, employers and other stakeholders and encouraging these activities to be conducted by phone or email where possible. As this pandemic evolves, there may be additional changes to how we connect with members and I encourage you to check our website frequently for any updates. We will absolutely reschedule any planned large group meetings, workshops or presentations once the threat has passed. Members who have already registered for one of our many educational workshops, will be contacted by email and advised of any changes.

I would also encourage you to seek out information on www.saskatchewan.ca/coronavirus, the Government of Saskatchewan’s dedicated webpage on COVID-19. It includes the most up-to-date information and guidance for all Saskatchewan residents.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about your pension or benefit plans. We recognize that this may be a prolonged effort, and want you to be fully aware of PEBA’s commitment to continue serving you during this time.

Sincerely, Dave Wild, Associate Deputy Minister Public Employees Benefits Agency
