Retirement Planning

Retirement is a big step for most teachers, which involves many decisions. While planning should begin several years before retirement, final preparations should begin at least six months in advance of your scheduled retirement date. 

Remember, three months before your retirement date, contact the Ontario Teachers' Pension Plan (OTPP) at 416-226-2700 or 1-800-668-0105 to obtain a personalized pension application form.

Staff at the OECTA Provincial Office are available to help you find the answers you need. Call 1-800-268-7230 or email
