This includes the online pension and group insurance benefits tools which are part of the Compensation Web Applications (CWA) suite of online products. You can use these tools to update your contact information, estimate the cost of buying back past pensionable service, estimate the amount of your future pension, your survivor’s entitlement and apply for and manage your coverage under the Public Service Health Care Plan.
