December 22, 2020 - News release was issued by the Province of Manitoba announcing changes for some employers with Defined Benefit Plans. To view the release, please visit news.gov.mb.ca
This release annouces that the Manitoba government will temporarily waive certain types of payments businesses and charities are required to put into pension plans, freeing up funds to help protect employees and prevent layoff or shutdown. Under the protection of the moratorium, businesses will be exempt from making unfunded liability and solvency deficiency payments until the end of 2021.
As MEBP employers do not make unfunded liability and solvency payments to the pension plan, this annoucement does not affect MEBP Employers.
