The Public Employees Pension Plan
PEPP is a defined contribution pension plan. Your contributions and your employer’s contributions, plus any return on investment, will be used to provide you with income based upon the account balance you have built, when you retire. Your account balance is the number of units you have in each fund multiplied by the current unit value for each fund.
As a PEPP member, have you ever wondered what is meant when the term benchmark is used? Well, a benchmark is a standard against which the performance of an investment fund or investment manager can be measured.
PEPP investors use benchmarks and indices to tell them “where the market is” and to help them gauge how well the markets are performing. PEPP also uses benchmarks to see how well the PEPP investment funds are performing over the short- and long-term.
