Pension Assessments

The pension assessment sets out the amount that must be paid by each pension plan to cover all expenses and expenditures that were incurred by the Financial Services Commission of Ontario (FSCO) for the pension sector.  The pension assessment is issued annually by FSCO (in January or February) to pension plan administrators and the amount must be paid within 30 days of the invoice date.  Pension Plan Administrators who want more information on pension assessments should refer to the resources below:
