Why should you become a member?

The Saskatchewan Retirees Association (SRA)….

Focuses its efforts on issues and concerns common to retired Saskatchewan public sector employees.

Monitors current retirement benefits, Plannera and the Public Employees Pension Plan (PEPP) plans in order to make relevant information available to members.

Informs members on issues that are relevant and timely through regular newsletters and informative webinars.

Advocates to government and other organizations for improvements to PEPP and Plannera retirement benefits.

Offers members a comprehensive health and dental insurance plan to help manage ongoing health costs similar to what was in place while working for the public sector in Saskatchewan. Refer to the SRA website for more information about benefits the insurance plans offer.

How does the SRA work for members?

  • The SRA is a volunteer led group of individuals dedicated to improving the lives of retired public sector employees by monitoring pension issues, offering members a post-retirement health insurance plan, and providing information about services and programs that are important to members in their retirement.
  • The SRA provides the ongoing management and administration of the health and dental plans provided to members through GMS.


At the September 2016 Board of Directors meeting, the Pensions Committee had its mandate changed to reflect the changing needs of the SRA. The Committee will now take on an expanded role to provide research on various topics of interest to the membership. Here is the updated mandate:
