The Nova Scotia Education Common Services Bureau Pension Plan is a defined benefit plan; however, some employees contribute to a defined contribution plan. There are six education entities participating in the plan – 1,581 members in the defined benefit plan and 312 members in the defined contribution plan.

The NSECSB Pension Plan Trustees oversee the security of the benefits accrued under the pension. The pension plan is audited on an annual basis and an actuarial valuation is performed every three years.
