Employer Newsletter

www.omers.com Gets a New Look

Earlier this year, we launched a new www.omers.com. We’ve given it a fresh, open design and made it easier to navigate.

The new Pensions homepage is designed to better serve both members and employers, and gives you quick links to the most frequently accessed parts of the site. We suggest that you bookmark the Employer homepage, along with other frequently needed resources and tools like e-access.

Check out the redesigned menu, which we will continually update to reflect employer needs.

About e-access

Enrol employees, submit Form 119 data, report leave periods, and ask questions through our secure e-correspondence feature – just some of the reasons why 882 out of 935 OMERS employers use e-access. If you’re already a convert, be sure to bookmark the e-access login to save time. If you’re one of the other 53, give e-access a try!

Did You Know? Lately, OMERS has been receiving an unprecedented number of requests for pension estimates. Please let your members know that they can obtain an estimate through myOMERS, using their most current data, with just a few clicks. It will be delivered to them online more quickly than if they contact OMERS Client Services to request one. And the results will be exactly the same!
