Canada Pension Plan (CPP) retirement benefits

Canada Pension Plan (CPP) retirement benefits are monthly payments that many Canadians get when they retire.

To get CPP retirement benefits, you normally have to have:

  • worked in Canada
  • made contributions to the CPP

Most people who get CPP retirement benefits get them when they are 65 years old. But you can start getting your retirement benefits:

  • as early as 60, and get less money each month
  • as late as 70, and get more money each month
