Service Information
DescriptionThe recipient may choose to start the pension at one of three different times:  
Age 65: 
* payable the month after the applicant's 65th birthday 
Early retirement pension at age 60-64:  
* CPP reduces your pension amount by 0.5% for each month that you take it before age 65, calculated from the time you begin receiving your pension 
* starting in 2012 to 2016, this early pension reduction will gradually increase from 0.52% to 0.6% per month * this means that if you start receiving your CPP pension in 2016 at age 60, your pension amount will be 36% less than it would have been had you taken it at age 65 
Late retirement pension at age 65-70:  
* if you take your pension after age 65, your monthly payment amount will increase by 0.7 % for each month that you delay receiving it up to age 70 (8.4% per year) 
* this means that, an individual who starts receiving their retirement pension at the age of 70 will receive 42% more than if they had taken it at 65 
The pension amount is adjusted annually to reflect changes in Consumer Price Index.
