It’s important LAPP receives feedback from active, deferred, and retiree members in order to continue evolving and growing the site and secure site while also adding new features and improvements.
During this year's Summer Survey Contest (held August 1 – September 30, 2023), we offered a chance to win an iPad Air to members who commented on or gave feedback about the new study, The Pensions Canadians Want — confirming the many benefits of your LAPP defined benefit (DB) pension plan — which can also be found by visiting the Advocacy and Research page.
As part of celebrating 60 years of LAPP, we added ten $60 Gift Cards to our Summer 2022 Survey Contest, which were won by choosing between six new slogans describing the many benefits of the Plan, finding answers in our 60th Anniversary Video, and discovering new research about the Economic Contributions and Social Value Benefits of your Plan. You can follow the links to read the reports directly or visit our new Advocacy page.
The main prizes were won by completing a short survey section about how the lapp.ca website (an iPad) and Your Pension Profile (an Apple Watch) is meeting or can better meet your needs.
Tara Heggie, of Spruce Grove, Alberta, was the lucky winner of the Apple iPad Air. Her name was drawn from 31,909 responses to our survey, which was over 12,000 more than last year. Tara works in the healthcare sector as a Practice Consultant and has been a proud member of LAPP for 22 years. She regularly goes to the LAPP website and Your Pension Profile to use the pension tools. “I like to do my calculations. It’s good for me to see the accurate numbers and real-time projections.” Tara will now use her new iPad to do her pension calculations!
Nicole Halcro, from Leslieville, Alberta, was the lucky winner of the Apple Watch. Her name was drawn from 17,275 responses correctly identifying Ben E. Fit as the full name of our mascot, Benny, and she also chose to optionally pick a favourite new slogan, watch our 60th Anniversary Video, and answer brief questions about two recent reports confirming the many additional values of the Plan.
Nicole is a registered nurse and has been with the same employer since starting as a healthcare aide at 15. She wasn’t immediately enrolled in LAPP at the start of her employment and wishes she had been because she now knows how much more it would have benefitted her as she gets closer to retirement age. “Planning for retirement is so important. You don’t realize at a younger age how vital it is to have a pension. It’s super beneficial for me to have LAPP in place now.” Nicole is an avid horseback rider and looks forward to tracking her activity on her new Apple Watch!
