Entitlement to a retirement pension under the Québec pension Plan
Workers can receive a retirement pension as of age 60, provided they contributed to the Québec Pension Plan for at least one year. They do not need to have stopped working.
In the event of disability
- If a worker stops working for health reasons and is under age 65, he or she can apply for disability benefits.
Reasons for refusing a retirement pension
A person cannot receive a retirement pension under the Québec Pension Plan if:
- he or she is receiving an unreduced income replacement indemnity from the CSST
- he or she is receiving an indemnity from the SAAQ , and Retraite Québec has deemed him or her to be disabled for the same disability.
Statement of Participation in the Québec Pension Plan
Every 4 years, Retraite Québec mails a Statement of Participation in the Québec Pension Plan to all contributors. The statement can also be consulted at any time online.
