Exchanging retirement pension for partner's pension
If you retire or leave Staples beforehand, and there is no or not enough partner's pension for your partner if you die, you can exchange part of your retirement pension for extra partner's pension. You will then receive a lower retirement pension. But your partner will receive a higher pension from Staples Pension Fund if you die.
Please note: this choice can only be made once! Once you have decided whether to exchange or not, this decision cannot be reversed.
