Enrolling a Member

posting date Revised: March 2010 print page Print this page Email link to page Email the link

This section provides background information on the enrolment process and describes the procedures and forms employers must use to enroll a member in the pension plan. 

Membership in the OPSEU Pension Plan is either mandatory or optional, depending on the individual’s employment status and union representation. For the majority of OPTrust members, enrolment in the Plan is mandatory. In many cases, employees whose membership is not mandatory may have the option of enrolling in the Plan voluntarily.

Please review the information on mandatory membership and optional membership to determine whether the new employee:

  • is required to become a member of the plan, or
  • has the option of joining the plan voluntarily.
