Work another job
If your financial needs in retirement are greater than the Early retirement benefit from the NASI Pension Fund provides (even when you consider how much you can supplement your income using your SIS Pension Fund account), you might have to work – something easier on the body than heavy construction. Working another job may be necessary if your retirement income is not high enough to sustain your financial needs.
Pitfall – you’re a Sprinkler Fitter – Sprinkler work is what you know best and you can’t work in the sprinkler, plumbing or pipefitting industry while at the same time receiving your NASI Pension Fund benefit. Such work is called “Disqualifying Employment”.
