Disability Pensions

If you become disabled while employed in education, you may be eligible for a full or partial disability pension. To qualify, you must:

  • have at least 10 qualifying years of service in the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan;
  • terminate employment in education and stop receiving any LTIP or WSIB loss of earnings benefits;
  • provide full and complete documentation of medical evidence that meets the requirements of the plan for a full or partial disability pension, as of the date you terminated employment; and
  • be under age 65.

If you're receiving a disability pension and return to work, you must notify us immediately.
