Retirement Benefits Package
The Calgary Board of Education provides benefit coverage to its employees and their dependents during retirement years.

When a retiree turns age 65, they will be issued a paid-up life policy in the amount of $5,000. All benefits will cease at the end of the month in which you reach age 65, however, you will have the option of taking the paid up life insurance.
