Deciding whether or not to divide your pension assets is an important decision. To begin this decision-making process, you may be required to obtain a valuation of your pension benefits (known as a Family Law Valuation).
To apply for a Statement of FLV, please complete a FSCO Family Law Form 1 - Application for Family Law Value on the FSCO website and send it to OMERS.
Here's how to complete Part B of the form:
Q: Who can apply?
A: An eligible applicant includes:
An eligible applicant does not include a common-law spouse of a member. In this case, the member must apply. This limitation is part of the legislation.
Q: Is there a fee?
A: The first Statement of FLV issued to you or your spouse on or after March 1, 2015 will be provided at no cost.
Q: When will OMERS send the Statement of FLV?
A: Within 60 days of OMERS receiving a completed application. (Applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.) If information is missing, OMERS will contact the applicant directly, or the designated contact person. OMERS cannot process statements for a future FLV Date (i.e., OMERS can only process statements after the FLV Date has occurred).
Important: When scheduling court dates or other meetings, keep in mind the 60-day processing time.
