Provincial Judges and Masters in Chambers Registered and Unregistered Pension Plans

The Provincial Judges and Masters in Chambers Registered Pension Plan (Judges Registered Pension Plan) and the Provincial Judges and Masters in Chambers Unregistered Pension Plan (Judges Unregistered Pension Plan) are, in combination, referred to as the "Judges Pension Plan", “JPP”, or "the Plan".

The Judges Pension Plan was established in 2001 with provisions retroactive to April 1, 1998. The Plan incorporates the pension recommendations of the 1998, 2000, 2006, 2009, 2013 and 2017 Judicial Compensation Commissions.

  • The Judges Registered Pension Plan provides benefits up to the maximum allowed for registered pension plans under the Income Tax Act and its regulations.
  • The Judges Unregistered Pension Plan provides benefits in excess of that limit.

The Judges Pension Plan replaced the Provincial Judges and Masters in Chambers Pension Plan which was established September 1, 1988. Prior to that date, Judges and Masters in Chambers were contributing members of the Public Service Management Pension Plan.

Judges Pension Plan is administered by Alberta Pensions Services Corporation (APS).

More information about this Plan can be found on the Judges website.
