The Superannuation fund management committee is responsible of providing and supervising funding of LOPT retirees.

The Superannuation fund management committee should meet once a month or upon the request of the President to discuss issues related to the management of the retirement funding.

The committee also revises retirement requests. When reaching 64 years, any physiotherapist that has been an LOPT member for 20 consecutive years, can submit a retirement request and benefit from the services of the Superannuation fund.

The committee is also responsible of setting the monthly salary amount for the retirees according to field investigations in order to ensure decent revenue for retired members, after the approval of the General Assembly. Special cases of early retirement requests can also be discussed.

Superannuation Fund
Superannuation fund is any plan, fund, or scheme which provides retirement income.

The superannuation is an organizational pension program created by OPTL for the benefit of its members.
Funds deposited in a superannuation account will grow, typically without any tax implications, until retirement or withdrawal.

A member is considered to be superannuated upon reaching the proper age of retirement, when he/she will be able to draw benefits from the fund.

The Superannuation fund shall give the opportunity of retired member to receive a monthly income based upon the result of a national study concerning the appropriate amount to be given for insuring a decent lifestyle.

Numerous activities are currently being undertaken to revise the existing superannuation program, and to provide the appropriate funds for sustaining this program in the future.
