Required information

The Termination selection statement is specific to your situation. Your statement will lay out all required documentation you need to submit:

  • Your My Account sign-in information (username and password)
  • A clear copy of government-issued identification to prove your age and identity if you need to verify your personal information
  • Completed and signed pages from your statement:
    • Option selection page
    • Former spousal relationship declaration page
      • You must fill out all of the sections, whether you are single, common-law or married
    • Payment direction page (if needed)
      • If your funds are locked-in or you are transferring to the registered pension plan of your new employer, you will need a signature by an authorized signing officer. The address must be the location of the bank or your new pension plan. The BC Financial Services Authority (BCFSA) requires that all financial institutions must be on the Superintendent’s List of Financial Institutions to accept transfers of locked-in funds. Visit the BCFSA’s website in External links to confirm your financial institution is on the list. We will not be able to transfer funds to an institution that is not listed.
  • If you are not a resident of Canada, provide any supporting documents requested
