How do I notify OMERS of an email, phone number or address change?

The easiest way to update your information is online with myOMERS.

I want to sign into my myOMERS account but I don’t know my username or password?

If you don’t know either your username or password, click the “forgot your password” or “forgot your username” link on myOMERS.

How do I notify OMERS of a name change?

Once you notify your employer, they will advise OMERS of your name change. You don’t need to do anything more.

How do I apply for a pension?

If you are still working for an OMERS employer, and you have decided to retire, advise your employer. They will complete a pension application and send it to us. If you are no longer employed by an OMERS employer, print and complete Form 144 – Application for retirement pension and fax or mail it to OMERS.

Will a leave of absence affect my pension?

Taking a leave doesn’t have to affect your pension, provided it’s authorized by your employer. When you return from the leave, you can purchase the period to add it to your OMERS credited service. Your employer will provide you with your options and manage the process for you.

The decision to purchase a leave period is up to you. You can use the myOMERS Retirement Income Estimator to weigh the cost of the purchase against how much it will increase your OMERS Plan pension.

How do I change my beneficiary?

Print and complete Form 206 – Beneficiary information and fax or mail it to OMERS.
