May I make decisions affecting my pension based solely on the information in this website?

No. This website does not provide specific investment, financial, tax or legal advice. In addition, the information in this website is summary in nature. Your particular circumstances and the specific provisions of the Public Service Pension Plan (the "Plan"), the Pension Benefits Act and the Income Tax Act govern your entitlement from the Plan. You need that specific information concerning your entitlement before you make any decisions affecting your pension. You should contact OPB directly for confirmation of your entitlement. You should also consult appropriate professional advisors before making any decision. Your pension may be one of your largest assets and you should take great care before taking any actions that may affect your pension. If you choose to take action affecting your pension without going through these steps, you do so at your own risk.
