Pension payments by direct deposit are automatically deposited into your account on the first banking day of the month. (Note: this isn't always the first day of the month; it could be the first day banks are open after a weekend or holiday.)
- Direct deposit is safe and secure: you don't have to wait for a cheque to arrive by mail, and you don't have to be home to get your payment.
- You can easily change your address information online with myOMERS or by calling OMERS.
We can make direct deposit payments to most banks and financial institutions in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. If you receive your pension in Canadian dollars, your 12 monthly pension payments in any year will be the same. Pensions paid in U.S. dollars or U.K pounds may fluctuate, depending on your bank's exchange rate.
If your payment is not in your account by the first banking day of the month, contact your bank or OMERS Member Services.
