UOIT pension plan
The UOIT pension plan is a defined contribution plan in which our staff and the university work together to build retirement savings. Every plan member will contribute three percent of pensionable earnings to the plan and may elect annually to make voluntary contributions of up to a further three percent of pensionable earnings. The university will contribute six percent of an employee's pensionable earnings to the plan. On an annual basis, an employee can decide whether a supplementary contribution of up to two percent of pensionable earnings is made to the pension plan or to the employee's health-care expense account.
