Sooner or later that time will arrive when you are going to retire. Or, you may be thinking well in advance of what your situation is going to be when you finally go. Our members are contributors to the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan (OTPP).
OSSTF provides retirement workshops from time to time which are very enlightening and will help you make a plan before you need the plan. Keep a lookout for upcoming retirement workshops.
If you need more immediate information, you can always go online to the OTPP web site. There you will find your personal record of contributions, as well as a ‘pension calculator’ which you can use to calculate a wide number of different retirement scenarios. You will need to get a login first, but it is well worth the trouble.
OSSTF/FEESO employs a Pensions Officer to provide advice and assistance to members regarding their pension. Contact Chris Goodsir at Provincial Office for more info.
You can use our Retirement Checklist to make sure you have everything ready for the big day.
