Payment of the additional amount for disability for retirement pension beneficiaries

The additional amount for disability is a set monthly amount that is indexed in January each year and added to your pension until you turn 65. In 2019, that amount is $496.33 a month. Payment of the additional amount for disability ends when you turn 65. Payment of your retirement pension will continue.
