NS Public Service Superannuation Plan
While you are in receipt of LTD benefits, several points regarding your pension apply:
1. Your membership in the Public Service Superannuation Plan (PSSP) continues while you are in receipt of LTD benefits.
2. You continue to make contributions at the current rate for the position you held prior to disability, with matching contributions made by your employer.
3. You continue to accumulate years of pensionable service while in receipt of LTD disability benefits.
4. LTD benefits cease the last day of the month in which the employee attains 35 years of pensionable service pursuant to the terms of the employee's pension plan.
