This is service with any OMERS participating employer that isn’t credited service. It can help bring you closer to an unreduced pension; however, it does not change the credited service used in the OMERS Plan pension formula. We add your to your credited service when we calculate your early retirement pension factor.
Examples of eligible service include:
- summer-student work with an OMERS employer
- service that was refunded when you left an OMERS employer
- unpurchased pregnancy/parental leave
- unpurchased waiting periods.
You may be able to purchase some eligible service and convert it to credited service. See “Retire with a Bigger OMERS Plan Pension
