VECA News
In January of 2008, the Board of Trustees of the Bahamas Hotel Industry Management Pension Fund introduced a new benefit that allowed participants to voluntarily defer a portion of their current salary as a savings for retirement. If you chose the Voluntary Employee Contribution Account (VECA), you would have set aside additional (savings) money to supplement the monthly pension benefit provided by your Employer through the Pension Plan at retirement. The Trustees granted 2.5% interest for VECA contributions in 2008, 7.0% in 2009, 6.0% in 2010, 2.0% in 2011 and 4.5% in 2012. All are extraordinary interest rates in today’s investment world. If you have questions regarding the VECA, you can call the Pension Fund Office or see your HR representative today.

Can I Make Contributions to the Pension Plan?

Yes. As of 1 January 2008, the Fund allows you to voluntarily defer a portion of your salary—in 2% increments, up to 10% of your current salary—to the Pension Fund to save for your retirement. You must make your election each Fall, and that election remains in effect for the entire following calendar year. These voluntary contributions are in addition to the contributions already made to the Fund on your behalf by your employer.
