Happy December, Everyone!
- Private music teachers who collect fees directly from their clients can include pension on lessons they teach and remit it on behalf of the person who pays for the lesson;
- There is some monthly paperwork involved as there are specific forms to complete and submit along with the pension amount;
- Monthly pension contributions definitely add up over time so that when you decide to retire/partially retire/pretend to retire even though you are actually old enough to do so, you will have a welcome source of pension income!
Please contact the office for more information on this opportunity to access a very significant benefit of your union membership.
Stay well and please let us know if we can be of assistance to you.
