A Guide for New Members
When you become a Member of the LPF, you will receive a welcome package containing a pension booklet summarizing the LPF Plan Rules, a Beneficiary Designation Form, and a LPF Member ID Card.
The LPF Member ID Card contains a unique 6 digit Member ID number that allows you to login to our Members’ Online Services AccessLPF, where you can update your personal information, do pension estimates, check your contributions, report WSIB Claims and much more.
Your LPF Member ID number replaces your SIN number when communicating with LPF. You must use it to log into our Mobile Apps and AccessLPF, and it will be quoted in all your personalized reports and statements.
It is very important to name a beneficiary to receive any death benefits that may be payable if you die before retirement.
In addition to your Annual Benefit Statement, the LPF mails out the BUILD Newsletter twice a year to your home address as well as other booklets and important notices from time to time. This is one more reason to keep your personal information up-to-date.
We mail an Annual Benefit Statement to all our vested members during the month of June of each year.
The Annual Benefit Statement is also available to view and download on our secure site AccessLPF by the end of May of each year.
Your Annual Benefit Statement provides a snapshot of your benefits as of December 31 of the previous year.
If you joined the LiUNA Pension Fund and you have pension benefits in another registered Defined Benefit pension plan, you may be able to transfer these benefits into the LiUNA Pension Fund.
You can make Self-Payments to increase your hours by making payments on your own.
The Plan provides you with a number of key financial benefits related to your retirement.
