DATE: Wednesday, Ocotber 7, 2020
TIME:  12:00 Noon – 1:00pm
LOCATION: Online – Zoom Video Conference
TOPIC: Introducing DBplus – a defined benefit pension plan for law firms
SPEAKER: Dawn Marchand, CEO & President, CBIA/Lawyers Financial

Only 47% of Canadians have pension coverage and most of those are defined contribution pensions, which are subject to the whims of the market. The numbers for law firms are even bleaker – most have no pension arrangement at all.

DBplus pays guaranteed retirement income for life. On average, a member who participates in DBplus over their entire career is expected to receive approximately $8 in pension benefits for every $1 they contribute.

Learn how your law firm can get started.
