1 Human Resources A GUIDE TO THE SHELL CANADA PENSION PLAN INITIAL DC AND DB/DC DUO October 2015

2 INTRODUCTION Each of us has a responsibility to plan and save for a financially secure retirement. The primary purpose of the Shell Canada Pension Plan (the Plan) is to provide one component of an individual s ongoing income after retirement. It works with your personal savings and government programs to provide income after you stop working, and it is an important part of your compensation as an employee of Shell in Canada (Shell). This guide provides a summary of two segments of the Plan Initial Defined Contribution (Initial DC) and DB/DC Duo which is comprised of Defined Benefit II (DB II) and Defined Contribution II (DC II). It explains the pension benefits paid from these segments when you retire or if you leave Shell before you retire, and death benefits paid from the Plan to your beneficiary. In the event of any discrepancy between this information and applicable Plan documents, entitlements will be determined in accordance with the Plan documents. At any time, Shell Canada Limited (Shell Canada) may amend any provision of, or entirely discontinue, any plan, program, policy, or procedure. Protecting Your Privacy Shell Canada is committed to protecting your personal information. We collect personal information about you and your dependents for the purpose of providing and administering the group benefits plans. We may share your personal information with third parties, as necessary, to determine eligibility for coverage and to administer the group benefits. Where third parties are located in jurisdictions outside of Canada they are required to protect the confidentiality of your personal information in a manner that is consistent with Canadian privacy laws and our privacy policy and requirements. Information respecting individual claims is held by Shell Canada s plan administrators and is not accessible by Shell Canada. Read our Privacy Policy on HR Online.

4 PLAN PARTICIPATION Regular employees are eligible to join the Shell Canada Pension Plan (the Plan) on date of hire or when the employee begins coverage under Shell Canada Limited s (Shell Canada) terms and conditions of employment.

5 INITIAL DC Initial DC is a defined contribution pension. This means your benefit at retirement is based on the balance in your DC account at that time. Contributions Shell contributes 6% of your pensionable earnings 2 to a DC account in your name. You are not required to contribute to Initial DC; however, you may contribute up to 4% of your pensionable earnings. Shell matches your contributions as follows: If You Contribute Shell Contributes 0% 6% 1% 7% 2% 8% 3% 9% 4% 10% When you join the Plan, your contribution percentage is automatically set at 4% of pensionable earnings so you get the maximum Shell contribution. You may change this contribution percentage through the Shell Benefits Centre at any time. You are responsible for directing the investment of your contributions and Shell s contributions. Your contributions are made by semi-monthly payroll deduction. Tax Deductibility Your contributions are tax-deductible. Your taxable income is reduced each pay period by the amount of your contributions. Shell s contributions are not taxable to you. Maximum Contributions The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) limits contributions to a defined contribution pension plan each year to 18% of your earned income to an annual maximum ($25,370 in 2015). If your contributions plus Shell s contributions reach the maximum in a year, your contributions stop and the remainder of Shell s contributions for the year are paid to you as a taxable cash payment each pay. 2 Pensionable earnings includes base pay and shift differential for base hours worked. It excludes overtime pay, special bonuses, allowances, Performance Bonus and Hourly Bonus Program, or any other extra earnings. A Guide to the Shell Canada Pension Plan Initial DC and DB/DC Duo 3

7 INITIAL DC continued Fund Management Fees and Segregated Fund Expenses are subject to the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) in British Columbia, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador and Ontario. The Investment Management Fees are collected monthly through an expense transaction from your DC account.

The Fund Operating and Segregated Fund Expenses are reflected in the daily unit value.

8 DB/DC DUO DB/DC Duo is made up of two parts: n Defined Benefit II (DB II), and n Defined Contribution II (DC II). DB II is a 1.75% defined benefit pension. This means your pension payments are based on a formula that provides an annual pension of 1.75% of your three-year final average earnings for each year of credited service while you are a participant in DB II. DC II is a defined contribution pension. This means your benefit at retirement is based on the balance in your DC account at that time. Contributions Shell s Contributions DB II: Shell contributes the full amount required to pay for your DB II pension formula. Shell s contribution rate varies over time depending on factors such as the investment earnings/losses of the Shell Canada Pension Trust, the members earnings, members ages, and other economic and demographic factors. Changes in Shell s contribution rate do not affect your DB II pension because your pension is based on a formula that reflects your final average earnings and years of credited service while you are a member in DB II. DC II: Shell contributes 4% of your pensionable earnings to a DC account in your name. You are responsible for directing the investment of Shell s contributions. You have the same choice of investment funds with the same management fees as members in Initial DC. See Investment Choices in the Initial DC section of this guide for more information. Your Contributions You are neither required nor permitted to make contributions to DB/DC Duo. 6 A Guide to the Shell Canada Pension Plan Initial DC and DB/DC Duo

9 AT RETIREMENT When You Can Retire You may retire from Shell and receive your DB II pension and your DC account balance as early as: n Age 55 with two years of recognized continuous service or more, or n At any age if you have 35 years of recognized continuous service or more. Retirement Income from DC (Initial DC and/or DC II) The balance in your DC account contributions plus investment earnings/losses must be used to provide lifetime retirement income. You must transfer the balance in your DC account into one of the locked-in financial vehicles approved by pension legislation in your province of employment. Your transfer options may include: n A Locked-in Retirement Account (LIRA), or n Another registered retirement plan if that plan approves the transfer. Retirement Income from DB II When you retire, your pension from DB II is paid in monthly installments for your lifetime and, if you have a spouse at retirement, for your spouse s lifetime if you die first. DB II Pension Formula The formula used to calculate your annual pension from DB II is: 1.75% x FAE(3) x Years of Credited Service while you participate in DB/DC Duo FAE(3) three-year final average earnings. This is the average of your pensionable earnings 3 over the 36 consecutive months (three years) during the last 10 years of your employment with Shell in which your earnings were highest. If you retire from active service, you may be eligible for post-retirement cost of living adjustments provided by Shell on a discretionary basis. Cost of living adjustments are not guaranteed, but the ability of the Plan s assets to provide any cost of living adjustments and other economic conditions such as the overall rate of inflation are assessed each year. Non-Discounted DB II Pension Your pension formula is not discounted if you retire: n On or after age 62, or n At any age if you have 35 years of recognized continuous service or more. DB II Early Retirement Discount If you retire before you are eligible to receive a non-discounted pension, your pension is discounted by: n 6% for each year (0.5% for each month) between ages 55 and 59 that your pension starts before the date you reach age 59, plus n 3% for each year (0.25% for each month) between ages 59 and 62 that your pension starts before the date you reach age 62. The chart on the right provides the DB II discount amount based on your age: If You Are Age DB II Discount For Each Year 55 33% 56 27% 57 21% 58 15% 59 9% 60 6% 61 3% 62 0% 3 Pensionable earnings include base pay and shift differential for base hours worked. It excludes overtime pay, special bonuses, allowances, Performance Bonus and Hourly Bonus Program, or any other extra earnings. A Guide to the Shell Canada Pension Plan Initial DC and DB/DC Duo 7

10 IF YOU LEAVE SHELL BEFORE YOU RETIRE If you leave Shell before you are eligible to retire, you are entitled to the value of the DB II pension you have earned and the balance in your DC account contributions plus investment earnings/losses. From DC (Initial DC and/or DC II) You are entitled to the balance in your DC account contributions plus investment earnings/losses. If you have two years of continuous service or more or are employed in Quebec, you must use the balance in your DC account to provide retirement income. You must transfer the balance in your DC account into one of the locked-in financial vehicles approved by pension legislation in your province of employment. Your transfer options may include: n A Locked-in Retirement Account (LIRA), or n Another registered pension plan if that plan approves the transfer. If you have less than two years of continuous service and are employed outside Quebec, you may: n Receive your pension value as a taxable cash payment, n Transfer it to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP), or n Transfer it to another registered retirement plan if that plan accepts the transfer. From DB II You are entitled to the value of the DB II pension you have earned. You may receive it in one of two ways: 1. A deferred pension You may leave your DB II pension formula in the Plan and receive: n A non-discounted pension starting at age 62, or n A reduced pension starting as early as age 55. Deferred pensions are not eligible for discretionary post-retirement cost-of-living adjustments. 2. Transfer the value of your DB II pension out of the Plan Instead of receiving a deferred pension, you may transfer the value of the deferred pension out of the Plan. If you have two years of recognized continuous service or more, or you are employed in Quebec, you must transfer the value of your DB II pension into one of the locked-in financial vehicles approved by pension legislation in your province of employment up to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) maximum transfer limit. The CRA maximum transfer limit is determined based on the value of your DB II pension limited to the CRA maximum pension, and a prescribed table of age related factors at the date of payment. You will receive the amount above the CRA maximum transfer limit as a taxable cash payment. Your transfer options may include: n A Locked-in Retirement Account (LIRA), or n Another registered pension plan if that plan approves the transfer If you have less than two years of recognized continuous service and you are employed outside Quebec, you may: n Receive the value of your DB II pension as a taxable cash payment, or n Transfer the value of your DB II pension to a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP). Small Amount If your pension value is a small amount as defined by provincial pension legislation you receive it as a taxable cash payment or transfer to an RRSP. 8 A Guide to the Shell Canada Pension Plan Initial DC and DB/DC Duo

11 IF YOU DIE BEFORE YOU RETIRE The death benefit from the Plan includes: n The value of your earned DB II pension, plus n Your DC account balance (Initial DC/DC II contributions plus investment earnings/losses). If You Have a Spouse Legislation requires that any death benefit from the Plan be paid to your spouse regardless of your beneficiary appointment. If you live in Alberta, British Columbia, Ontario, Quebec or Saskatchewan, legislation permits your spouse to sign a waiver of this right. Your spouse is entitled to a taxable cash payment or a transfer to a RRSP if: n You were employed in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan, or n You were a participant in the Plan for less than two years when you died, or n The death benefit is a small amount as defined by provincial pension legislation. Otherwise, your spouse must transfer the value of your death benefit into a locked-in financial vehicle approved by pension legislation. If You Do Not Have a Spouse The death benefit is paid to your beneficiary or estate as a taxable cash payment when you die. A Guide to the Shell Canada Pension Plan Initial DC and DB/DC Duo 9

12 DEATH BENEFITS AFTER YOU RETIRE From DC (Initial DC and/or DC II) When you retire and transfer your DC account balance into a locked-in financial vehicle approved by pension legislation, the death benefit paid to your spouse or your beneficiary is determined by the terms of the financial vehicle you choose at retirement. From DB II Your DB II pension is paid for your lifetime. If you have a spouse at retirement, pension legislation requires that a portion of your pension continues to your spouse for his or her lifetime if you die first (a joint and survivor pension). If You Have a Spouse at Retirement You receive a Joint and Survivor 60% Pension. You have the option to purchase a 10-year guarantee of this pension. Joint and Survivor 60% Pension If you die first, your spouse continues to receive monthly pension payments from DB II for life equal to 60% of your monthly pension. Discretionary cost-of-living adjustments apply to your spouse s pension if you retire from active service. Joint and Survivor 60% Pension with a 10 Year Guarantee You may purchase a 10-year guarantee for your Joint and Survivor 60% Pension. Your monthly pension payments are reduced to pay for the guarantee. If you die before 10 years of payments are made, 100% of your monthly pension continues to your spouse, provided your spouse survives you, for the remainder of the 10-year guarantee period. After that, 60% of your monthly payments continue to your spouse for his or her lifetime. If your spouse dies: n Before you, your beneficiary or estate receives the value of the remaining guaranteed payments. n After you, but before 10 years of payments are made, his or her estate receives the value of the remaining guaranteed payments. If You Do Not Have a Spouse at Retirement You receive a lifetime pension with a 10-year guarantee. If you die before 10 years of payments are made, your beneficiary or estate receives the value of the remaining payments. 10 A Guide to the Shell Canada Pension Plan Initial DC and DB/DC Duo
