If you work for more than one HOOPP employer, you can build a bigger pension by contributing at all of your workplaces.
Here are the most common workplace scenarios:
- You are a member of HOOPP working part-time for multiple HOOPP employers.
Once you become a member at one employer, you must join the Plan at all employers where you work part-time. If you begin working part-time for a new HOOPP employer, let them know you are already a HOOPP member.
- You work full-time with one HOOPP employer and part-time at another.
If you’re already working full-time, you might take an additional part-time job at another HOOPP employer. Because you are already building full-time pension service, you can choose whether to contribute for your part-time work. If you prefer not to contribute for your part-time work, you will be asked to complete a HOOPP Contributions Waiver form. If you later terminate your full-time employment, you must enrol at your other employer(s) where you work part-time.
- You work part-time, then move to full-time work at one of your HOOPP employers.
If you are a HOOPP member working part-time at multiple employers, you might switch to full-time at one of them. You will then be building full-time pension service, and you will have the choice to stop contributing at the employer where you work part-time. Your employer where you work full-time will report to HOOPP that you have moved from part-time to full-time. To stop contributing at your other employers, you need to contact their human resources department and submit a completed Contributions Waiver form to HOOPP.
