Association of Public Service Alliance Retirees
The goal of the Association of Public Service Alliance Retirees (APSAR) is to provide resources to all retired former PSAC members and those over 50 years old. We are a united front, protecting the interests of retired union members, or those who are set to leave the public service soon.
APSAR serves retirees in the following ways:
We keep our members informed about issues related to pensions in the federal public service and beyond.
We ensure that all PSAC members, all retired former PSAC members and their spouses, beneficiaries or survivors obtain and receive all of the benefits due to them.
We monitor any changes to member contributions to pension plans and criticize them when we feel they are excessive.
We defend, safeguard, and seek to improve all of the provisions of the Public Service Superannuation Act, the Canada Pension Plan, the Quebec Pension Plan and Old Age Security, so that all retirees and elderly people can obtain the services that meet their needs.
