Steps to Take

  1. To get a cost estimate, you and your former pension plan must complete the Other Employment – Application for buying credit form. Forward the form to us along with a copy of the termination benefit statement from your former pension plan, if available.
  2. We will provide you with a quote to buy back the credit, along with estimates of the improvement to your pension.
  3. After reviewing the cost and pension estimates, you decide whether or not to proceed with the buyback.
  4. If you decide to proceed, ask your former pension plan or financial institution to transfer your funds to the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan.
