Requirement to Use Approved Forms

The Superintendent has approved the use of several pension forms that must be used for various purposes in the administration of a pension plan.  
The pension plan administrator must provide certain forms directly to FSCO, in the approved format. Forms that can be submitted in paper format can be downloaded and printed from FSCO’s website.
Effective January 1, 2013, all prescribed pension plan filings that have a due date on or after January 1, 2013, must be filed electronically through the Pension Services Portal (PSP). 

Filings with a due date before January 1, 2013

For Annual Information Returns (AIR) and Pension Benefits Guarantee Fund (PBGF) Assessment Certificates with a due date before January 1, 2013, FSCO provided plan administrators with the forms annually, in paper format. The forms contain plan specific data from the FSCO database that enhance security and aid FSCO in its review. If you wish to submit an AIR or PBGF with a due date before January 1, 2013, in paper format, you may request a duplicate from FSCO by email or by calling (416) 590-7177.  The specimen forms available on FSCO’s website are only for reference purposes.
FSCO will not accept non-approved AIR and PBGF forms.  FSCO will return all such forms to the plan administrator with a letter outlining the correct process that must be followed. The approved forms must be completed and filed within 30 days of the date of the letter.

Contacting FSCO

Inquiries about AIR and PBGF filings should be addressed to staff assigned to the pension plan.  Contact information for pension staff assigned to a particular pension plan is available at Pension Plan Information Access.
