  • you must be between 65 and 69.
  • you must sign a contract with the college which requires you to resign and take your retirement on or before December 31 of the year you turn 69.
  • you stop contributing to the RREGOP pension and cannot add to the years of service (because RREGOP considers you have retired).

The total value of pension benefits and revenue received from Dawson College can NOT exceed your reference salary.
