Payment of your pension

  • It is suggested that you make your application from 1 to 3 months before the date you want to begin receiving your pension. Get information about retirement pension conditions of payment.
  • If you are over 65, have stopped working and have not yet applied for your pension, it can paid retroactively as from the date on which you stopped working instead of being increased by 8,4 % for each year of postponement.  
  • Payment of your retirement pension is not automatic. You must file an Application for a Retirement Pension to receive it.
  • Your pension will be paid by cheque or by Direct Deposit on the last working day of each month.
  • If the retired person dies, payment of the retirement pension stops.
