All employees of school boards with teaching credentials must join the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, even if the employee is in a non-teaching position.
If an OMERS member becomes certified to teach, submit a Request for an OMERS plan benefit (e-Form 143) for the member.
Important! Indicate the certification date in the “Notes to OMERS” field of the e-Form 143. We need to know this so we can terminate membership in the OMERS Plan, without sending the options package that’s usually sent to members who terminate employment.
