Lawyers finally have a pension to call their own

People group target 3d

You’ve watched other professions enjoy the enviable benefits of a guaranteed pension for life while you’ve likely been left on your own to save what you can for retirement. Chances are pretty good that you don’t have access to a guaranteed pension plan that can move with you and grow over your career.

So long, status quo 

In 2016, Lawyers Financial created a task force of leading pension and actuarial experts with a mission to find a better pension alternative for lawyers. The evidence was clear: Lawyers Financial needed to join forces with the Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology (CAAT) Pension Plan to provide predictable and sustainable lifetime income for Canada’s legal community. 

Meet DBplus from CAAT
