2024 membership fees

For 2024, members will pay no more than $76.50 for their annual membership fee. Current members whose 2023 fee was less than $73 will see an inflationary increase of 4.8% – which is equivalent to the annual inflationary increase for pensions in 2024.

RTOERO continues to offer free membership until retirement – or in the first year of joining for those who are already retired.

Effective Jan. 1, 2024, all Entente Group Insurance Program policyholders will no longer be required to make a payment for their RTOERO membership fee. Instead, the membership fees for Entente plan participants will be covered by income from long-term investments funded by insurance premiums.
