Patti and Mo 


What's important to us in retirement? Staying healthy and having the financial capacity to enjoy life, so we can check things off our bucket list! Since retiring, we’ve travelled to British Columbia, Tennessee, Florida, South Carolina and Italy, France and Spain. Our next planned trip is an Alaskan cruise and land tour.

OMERS is great. It’s allowed us to retire while we’re still young and healthy, so that we can enjoy the activities that we planned. We’ve also taken advantage of the Additional Voluntary Contributions program.

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.
