Staying connected during the COVID-19 Pandemic
OMERS has been monitoring the status of COVID-19 and has implemented operational changes to keep our visitors and employees safe while continuing to support members, employers and stakeholders. As a result, we will not be accepting member walk-ins.
If you receive your pension payment each month in the mail, please switch to direct deposit as soon as possible. This will minimize risk should Canada Post decide to reduce or suspend their business operation.
How to switch to direct deposit:
Your OMERS membership number
The last three digits of your Social Insurance Number
Your date of birth
A valid email address
2. Once you have registered, switch to direct deposit:
Click Direct Deposit in the left menu.
Review the legal disclaimer and if acceptable, click “Agree”.
Enter your bank information as found on your personal cheque (institution number, transit number and account number).
Review the information and proceed with direct deposit.
When you switch to direct deposit, all future pension payments will be automatically deposited into your bank account on the first business day of each month.
