Applying for a cost to buy service in the OMERS Plan just got easier.
Eligible members now have two ways to apply for a cost to buy service:
1) Members can use the improved Buy-back Calculator on the myOMERS secure member site.
The improved Buy-back Calculator now produces a personalized buy-back package (saved on myOMERS for 6 months). The package includes:
