A pension earned in a registered pension plan by a pension plan member during their marriage or common-law relationship is considered part of “family property” in the event that the member’s spousal relationship ends.
There is no requirement to divide the pension - it’s up to you and your former spouse. Deciding whether or not to divide your pension assets is an important decision. Please seek independent legal advice from a family law lawyer. OMERS cannot provide you with legal or financial advice.
