WCB Pensions Update
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM PST This is a virtual event
A few significant changes have been made to pensions in the past couple of years. For example, you’ve probably been contacted by members who have received letters from the WCB as they approach their 63rd birthday, asking them if they intend to work past age 65. This brief course will touch on what the recent changes are and how they have affected the way we have to argue pensions cases on appeal.
