Retiree Benefit Program

The Retiree Benefit Program (RBP) is a negotiated entitlement available to qualified retired members covered by the Nurses' Bargaining Association (NBA) collective agreement. It's a unique program that draws on a special Retiree Benefit Fund set up to help provide nurses with better retirement benefits and better inflation protection for their pension.

Between 2009 and 2019, members enrolled in the RBP had been receiving a monthly subsidy covering 50 percent of their Medical Service Plan (MSP) premiums. BCNU has been proud to provide this service to our members.

However, this subsidy ended in January 2020, after the provincial government eliminated MSP premiums for all BC residents.

Future RBP disbursements or services are currently under review by the RBP committee.
