You may want to know…

What happens if you become re-employed in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police after you retire?

Your monthly pension will end because you cannot receive a benefit from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Pension Plan and contribute to the plan at the same time.

Your monthly pension will be reactivated when you stop contributing to the plan. At that time, your monthly pension will be recalculated based on your total pension credits including those earned during your re-employment period. The indexation amount payable will be based on your most recent date of retirement.

What happens if you're re-employed in the Royal Canadian Mounted Police after you've already received a Transfer Value?

If you're re-employed in the RCMP, and are contributing to the RCMP Pension Plan, you can elect to purchase the pensionable service for which you received a Transfer Value benefit. Additional information can be obtained by contacting the Government of Canada Pension Centre.
