Did you know that the Early Retirement Incentive Plan is part of our Collective Agreement? The guiding principles for ERIP are in Appendix B on page 202 of the CA. This year’s information regarding the actual amounts available to teachers retiring in June is now available in schools, along with a handy reference that includes guidelines for eligibility and the process. If you are between the ages of 55 and 64, have worked with the VSB for 10 years and are considering retiring this June, you should ask your principal or staff rep for the ERIP information package.
