I retired at 65 from the Town of Ajax after a rewarding career. I knew right away that I wanted to give back to my community through volunteering. Since retiring, I’ve volunteered at a local women’s shelter and a hospital. Retirement has been rewarding, with lots of time with my wife, family and travel. 

I’m lucky to have an OMERS pension. It’s a defined benefit plan that provides a pension for life. 

Social Value of the Plan

The OMERS defined benefit plan isn’t just important to our members. Research confirms that the OMERS Plan generates social and economic value for communities in Ontario, underscoring the importance of preserving OMERS as a defined benefit pension plan.
