Step 4: Apply to Ontario Teachers' for a Division of Pension in Pay

This step only applies if you're using your pension to settle an equalization obligation.

Your former spouse must apply to us directly.

Here's how to apply:

  1. Complete the Application to Divide a Retired Member's Pension (FSCO Form 6). (Instructions and Q&As)
  2. Select a division of pension option (listed in Part E of your Statement of Family Law Value).
  3. Include the finalized court order, arbitration award, or separation agreement, which should clearly indicate the amount of each pension installment your former spouse is entitled to, and all other required documents with the application.

Ontario Teachers' divides and adjusts your pension as outlined in the finalized court order, arbitration award, or separation agreement upon receiving the completed application with all required documents.
