Dear Pension Fund Member

A call for nominations!

The University of Johannesburg Defined Benefit Pension Fund has a number of vacancies on the Board of Trustees for alternate member elected trustees. The alternate trustees will take office on 1 January 2024.

UJDBPF Trustee Election

As members of the Fund – you have the right and obligation to elect 50% of the Board of Trustees managing your retirement fund. We therefore urge you to participate in the Trustee Election process and to ensure that you elect a person you can trust to manage your retirement fund.

Attached, please find more information regarding the duties of a trustee. An alternate trustee will fill the position of a trustee should they resign from office or not be able to attend a trustee meeting.

Should you be willing to act as a trustee, please note that you can nominate yourself. A list of the University of Johannesburg Defined Benefit Pension Fund members is available at the Pensions Office.

The due date for the submission of nominations is 17 November 2023.
