The OPSEU Pension Trust limits the release of member and retiree information as prescribed under the privacy rules contained in federal and provincial legislation (both current and proposed). An employer does not have the right to access a member’s pension information, regardless of the employer’s status as a contributor to the Plan.
OPTrust will not release plan member data to the employer unless the member consents to its release by completing an OPTRUST 3004 form (Authorization for the Release of Personal Information). This includes but is not limited to:
- address information
- beneficiary or spousal information
- the amount of members’ earned or projected pension
- the amount of a retirees’ pension payments.
For more information on members’ and retirees’ privacy rights, see our statement on Privacy at OPTrust.
