Pension Adjustment
Pension adjustment payments are issued by cheque only. This includes pension adjustments, retroactive long-term benefit payments and lump sum
payments (commutations). These cheques are generally printed and mailed every Tuesday and Thursday.

Note: If you have more than one claim, you only need to complete one Direct Deposit Enrollment Form and provide one set of banking account information. All deposits for all active claims will be deposited in the same bank account.
