This class action is brought on behalf of Bell Pension Plan members, and those otherwise entitled to benefits under the Plan. The claim alleges the Plan utilized an incorrect calculation of the cost of living indexation. As a result of the incorrect calculation, Bell Pension Plan members, or those otherwise entitled to benefits under the Plan, have been short-changed their full pension entitlements.
On August 12, 2019, Justice Morgan released his decision certifying the proceeding (click here to see the decision), but ruling against the plaintiff on the summary judgment motion (ruling that Bell calculated the pension index correctly). That decision is now under appeal.
