CPP pension contributions

Workers make contributions to the Canada Pension Plan. If you work for an employer, these are deducted from your pay cheques. Employers also make contributions to the Canada Pension Plan on behalf of their employees.

The amount of your retirement pension or disability benefit is based on a few things, including:

  • the amount you contributed to your plan,
  • how long you contributed for, and
  • the age you retire at.
