The OMERS defined benefit pension plan is designed to provide a reliable stream of income in retirement.

An OMERS pension can be one of our member's most valuable assets. When our members retire, they are provided with regular pension payments that continue for the rest of their lives.

Members contribute and employers match. For members, this provides a valuable way to save for retirement with contributions that are matched by their employer.

Since 1962, employers have recognized the value of the OMERS Pension Plan as a means of recruiting and retaining great employees as an integral part of their total compensation, along with salary and other benefits.

OMERS investment returns fund the balance of members' pensions. Our investment teams around the world have established OMERS as a leading global investor and manager of high-quality assets, by taking a long-term view to create value and provide stable returns for our members.
