Community Agencies Benefit Plans changed it’s name from United Way Agencies’ Employee Benefits on March 1, 2012 to reflect the membership of the plans that have expanded to include not-for-profit social service agencies in Manitoba.
Formed in February 1971 the Retirement Plan has a long and rich history of providing a defined benefit pension plan to its Members. As the name implies your benefit at retirement is defined by the Plan’s formula. Originally formed to provide a pension for employees of United Way of Winnipeg and “United Way Agencies” membership has expanded to include not-for-profit social service agencies in Manitoba.
Started a few years after the Retirement Plan, in 1979 the Group Insurance Plan is specially designed for not-for-profit social service agencies. Like the Retirement Plan, membership has expanded beyond “United Way Agencies”.
Enrollment in the Plan is a condition of employment with all Agencies. All permanent full-time and permanent part-time employees must enroll in the Plan. Benefit coverage is also extended to eligible family members.
