Frequently Asked Questions
How do I contact Argus for assistance with online registration of my pension account?
If you require additional assistance, please contact the Argus Customer Service Centre at 298-0888.
How do I register for an online pension account?
Registration is easy. Click “Member Login” under the “Pensions” section. A login page will appear and select “Not Registered”. This will take you to the online registration form. You will need your social insurance number to register. This number can be obtained from your member pension statement, your employer or the Social Insurance Department.
Within one to two business days after completing registration, Argus will send you an email containing your login and password information.
Do I have to purchase an annuity at retirement?
The law allows you to receive your pension either in the form of regular annuity payments for your lifetime or by making withdrawals from your account using a prescribed formula to ensure that you receive payments for life. In either case, provision may be made for payment to a beneficiary upon your death after retirement.
