Getting started

There are three types of MROO memberships. See below:

Life Member

As a life member, you'll pay a one-time membership fee of $25. If you enroll in the MROO Health Insurance Plan before you pay the $25 membership fee, we'll waive the fee. Life members each have one vote at annual MROO zone meetings and hold elected office.

Associate Member

Associate members are enrolled in the OMERS pension plan but aren't receiving their OMERS pension yet because they're still working. Associate members must pay the membership fee. If you've already enrolled in the MROO Health Insurance Plan, we'll waive the fee.

If you're an associate member, you'll automatically become a life member when you start receiving your OMERS pension, without paying any further fee. As an associate member, you'll have all the privileges of life members, except you won't be able to vote or hold office. If you list your spouse/partner on your application, if you predecease him/her, they are eligible to assume the membership as an “Associate” member for life.

Affiliate Member

Affiliate members are retirees from “other public sector employers,” are at least aged 65 and don't receive an OMERS pension. “Other public sector employers” include government organizations and organizations primarily funded by government in the fields of health care, education (including post-secondary education), public utilities and electricity, public transportation, childcare, and care for senior citizens. As an affiliate member, you'll be eligible to enroll in the MROO Health Insurance Plan, but you cannot vote or hold office.

Once you have completed your membership application form, your membership type will automatically be selected based upon your responses.
