An Ontario Teachers' pension, combined with income from the Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security, usually provides enough money for a comfortable retirement. Only members who began teaching after age 35, have lengthy breaks in service or anticipate heavy expenses in retirement may require additional personal savings to supplement their Ontario Teachers' and government pensions. Today, a typical career teacher retires at age 58 with an annual pension of about $46,000.
