BCGREA Mission Statement
The BCGREA is committed to representing all members in good standing of the association that are in receipt of a superannuation allowance under the Public Service Pension Act of British Columbia.
Representation includes, but is not limited to, maintaining strong communications and negotiations with the government of BC, and Canada, on behalf of the membership.
Members in the association may also access the services and benefits that accrue through the affiliation of Companies and other associations having specific plans and services designed for the benefit of retirees in BC and Canada.
The primary goal of the BCGREA is to obtain benefits for our members and strive to prevent erosion of these benefits. Our participation has been successful in obtaining many benefits for pensioners such as:
• Extended Health and Dental coverage
• Cost of Living Increases
• Discount Hotel Rates
• Group Insurance Rates
Guaranteed Issue Life Insurance
Travel – Out of Province Insurance
House (Residential) Insurance
Our strength of 9,000 members in the BCGREA is important and because of this support, ensures members’ views and concerns are made known to the Pension Corporation.
The greater our numbers, the louder our voice. We urge all qualified persons to become a member of the BCGREA and to encourage other fellow government retirees to do the same.
