Message below from the National President regarding the House of Commons Petitions / Pétitions de la Chambre des communes.
Good day folks.As most, if not all of you are aware, we, the Association has been attempting to remove the “Marriage Over Sixty” clause from our Pension agreement. This outdated, unfair, and highly discriminatory legislation was first enacted in 1901, often referred to as the “gold digger clause” and applies to all pensioned members of the RCMP, Canadian Military, and Public Service. Simply stated, it will not allow pension benefits to be passed on to the spouse of a deceased pensioner if they married or entered into a registered Common Law relationship after the pensioner reached the age of 60. Nor will the surviving spouse be provided any Federal medical or dental benefits that were enjoyed prior to the pensioner passing away.
