Pension Tax Information for 2017
If you received pension related income in 2017 from the Sears Canada Inc. Registered Retirement Plan, Sears Canada is required to provide you with a T4A tax form identifying these distributions and any related withholdings. We have received confirmation from Sears Canada that physical copies of the T4A forms were mailed to individuals on February 27, 2018. If you received a lump sum distribution, you may also receive a duplicate form. This was the result of a technical issue at Sears Canada, however we have been assured that the Canada Revenue Agency has received the correct information. If you believe that you received pension distributions in 2017, but you have not received a T4A related to these distributions, please contact our office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.800.244.7120, as this may be due to an incorrect address on file with Sears Canada.
In addition, recipients of MSP Premiums in British Columbia and members of the group life insurance plan received incomplete forms through mysears.ca. This information has been corrected, and updated forms were mailed to recipients during the week of March 5, 2017. Please note that the T4A form is separate from the T4 form that you receive for employment income. The T4 form was only provided through mysears.ca, unless a special request was made to Sears Canada for a physical copy. If you are having issues related to your T4 form, please contact Ursel Phillips at SearsCanadaEmployees@upfhlaw.ca or 1.844.855.8352.
