Hi, when my husband and I separated 3 years ago we each got our own lawyers and put on paper what we wanted. My lawyer put down that I would be the beneficiary of my husbands OMERS Pension Plan. But my lawyer did not do his homework!!!!! He neglected to ensure the rules about Pension Plans. OMERS will not honor that in my agreement because you only qualify to be the beneficiary of a Pension if you are with the individual at the time of his collecting the Pension. In addition to which my lawyer left out a lot of important clauses, such as, if my husband was to pass away prior to retiring then my share of the pension would be locked into an RRSP of my choice. I paid for the LAWYER"S services and he did not bother to do his job. When I contacted the LAW SOCIETY ... they back their LAWYERS, they will not support YOU!
