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
