Applying For Your Pension
Will my pension begin automatically when I retire?
No, your pension will not begin automatically. To receive your pension, you must apply for it online. If you apply after your resignation date, you may lose pension payments.
When should I apply for my pension?
You can apply online up to four months before your pension start date. For example, if you're retiring in June, you can apply as early as March 1. Keep in mind, you should apply for your pension no later than the month following your last date of employment.
Do I need to come in for an interview?
No, our Pension Benefits Specialists can usually answer your questions on the phone. If you prefer an interview in person, a Pension Benefits Specialist is available to meet with you at our office at 5650 Yonge St. (at Finch Ave., in the Xerox tower) in Toronto, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Call us at (416) 226-2700 or 1-800-668-0105 to arrange an appointment or to speak with a Pension Benefits Specialist.
