Please bear in mind that transferring your benefit involves numerous steps and can be quite a time intensive process. Because the Public Service Superannuation Plan provides a defined benefit, you will be required to submit detailed information about your previous employment and pensionable earnings and this can take some time to collect.
Full details of the steps involved in transferring your benefit are available on the website of Public Works and Government Services Canada at http://www.tpsgc-pwgsc.gc.ca/pension/act/transfr/au-in/taurp-ptin-eng.html
