Canada Pension Plan (CPP) retirement pension

A Canada Pension Plan (CPP) retirement pension is a monthly payment that many Canadians get when they retire.

To get a CPP retirement pension, you normally have to have:

  • worked in Canada
  • made contributions to the CPP

Most people who get a CPP retirement pension get it when they are 65 years old. But you can start your retirement pension:

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