As a member of the OPSEU Pension Plan, there are a number of life events that will affect your pension.
Starting Your Pension
Your pension is usually paid on the 26th of the month, is payable for your lifetime and provides survivor benefits for your eligible spouse.
Pension changes at 65
At age 65 the additional pension benefit from OPTrust ends and your pension is integrated with the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).
Insured benefits for eligible retirees include coverage for: dental, supplementary health and hospital and basic life insurance.
Marital Status changes
Marital status affects survivor benefits. If your marital status changes, notify OPTrust to ensure your information is up to date.
Planning for your Survivors
Your OPTrust pension provides benefits for your survivors, so it's important that you identify who you want to receive those benefits.
