About the CSSB
As the Plan trustee, the Board is required to:
Manage The Civil Service Superannuation Fund (Fund) in accordance with the rules of the Plan, governing legislation, and common law in the interest of Plan members and their beneficiaries
Obtain an actuarial valuation every three years
Regularly review its investment policy
Obtain an independent audit each year
Prepare an Annual Report
The day-to-day management of investment assets and delivery of pension and insurance benefits is accomplished by a dedicated and diverse team consisting of approximately 50 staff members.
The amount of pension a member will receive is not directly related to investment returns. Good investment returns are necessary to secure the Fund’s ability to continue to meet its current and future obligations to pay benefits, and are the major contributor to surplus.
In the context of providing administrative services in connection with the Civil Service Superannuation Fund (Pension Plan) and various other plans, the Civil Service Superannuation Board of Manitoba (the “CSSB”) interacts with the personal information of plan members and associated individuals.
A professional, sustainable pension plan, designed for the future of our members.
