Temporary Part-time Work Arrangements
Employers must complete the following procedures for a member taking a temporary part-time work arrangement. The same procedures should be followed whether:
- the member elects to contribute based on their regular hours during the arrangement, or
- the member elects to contribute based on their reduced hours only during the arrangement
1. Have the member complete page 1 of the Temporary Part-time Work Arrangement Contribution/Buyback Application (OPTrust 1030) form
The member must complete page 1 of the OPTrust 1030 form before the start of the temporary part-time work arrangement and submit it to their employer.
2. Complete and submit the OPTrust 1030 form to OPTrust
The employer must complete page 2 of the OPTrust 1030 form and submit it to OPTrust before the start of the temporary part-time work arrangement. This form must be completed whether or not the member chooses to make pension contributions based on their regular hours or on their reduced hours during the arrangement.
Note! The employer is responsible for confirming that the member is eligible for a temporary part-time work arrangement as defined under the Plan and arranging to continue remitting pension contributions to OPTrust.
