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
