Defined benefit registered pension plan (DB RPP)

Reward your plan members by contributing to their retirement income

You can help support your plan members in retirement by contributing to a Defined Benefit Registered Pension Plan (DB RPP) on their behalf.

Even though DB RPPs can be complex to administer, and require minimum employer contributions, Manulife makes it easier and supports you with:

  • Diverse investments for all plan sizes
  • Innovative de-risking strategies
  • Strong governance
  • Robust plan management

What does a defined benefit registered pension plan offer?

Retirement income, based on a predetermined formula, is usually based on years of service and pre-retirement income.

The plan may be contributory (to include employee contributions) or non-contributory (only includes sponsor contributions).
