OMERS announced that pensions will increase by 2.29% as of January 1, 2019. Most members whose pensions began in 2018 will receive a pro-rated increase. This increase reflects the change in the cost of living, as measured by the Canadian Consumer Price Index (CPI).
OMERS inflation protection increases retirement, disability and survivor pensions each year.
Members who are on pension will get an Annual Statement of Pension listing their updated pension amount for 2019 in late December. The statements are posted on the secure member myOMERS site, then mailed to members who receive their pension information by paper mail.
