You will need:

  • the dates of birth of your children, if applicable
  • your file number with the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ), if you are receiving an indemnity
  • your banking information to sign up for direct deposit.

When should you apply for your retirement pension?

  • You can receive your full retirement pension as of age 65. However, it may be to your advantage to postpone applying for it until age 70. You can also retire earlier and apply for it as of age 60 if you have made sufficient contributions to the plan. However, the amount of your pension will be reduced.
  • To determine the right time to retire, you can use CompuPension. With this tool, you can obtain an estimate of the amounts to which you are entitled, compare several scenarios and therefore make an informed decision.
  • You can apply for your retirement pension from 1 to 3 months before the time you wish to receive your first payment.
