Questions and answers

Each issue, we will answer a few of the top questions employers are asking.

What's the easiest way to report multiple leave periods to OMERS?

"Batch submits" via e-access is the fastest way to report multiple leaves. First, you compile your leave data in one file – you can do this manually using the Import File Builder or have your payroll automatically generate the file using the file specifications on e-access. Then, you import the file into e-access, which generates the individual requests and allows you to batch submit.

Should I submit revised financial information on a paper Form 143 – Request for an OMERS Plan Benefit?

No, send the information through e-Correspondence. Also, when submitting the revised information, confirm all financial information for the member – earnings, pension adjustment, and service – even if only one amount changed.
