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.
