The content of the Employer Manual has been organized according to key events in a member’s career, and the pension transactions that these events may generate. Each section of the manual identifies key employer responsibilities related to these pension transactions.

Within each section, the content is grouped under three main headings:

Background Information

This subsection provides an overview of the section topic as well as detailed information that you will require to complete the transaction.


This subsection provides a concise, step-by-step summary of actions you must take to complete the transaction. Where procedures vary for different employers, (e.g. for the Ontario Public Service vs. non-OPS agencies, boards and commissions) required steps for each employer group will be identified.

Forms and Tools

This subsection provides links to all the forms and additional tools needed to complete the transaction. These will include:

  • step-by-step checklists for each transaction
  • required forms
  • samples showing how to complete each form
  • tables, charts and other tools, as required.
