To eligible Canadians and their families, the CPP provides several benefits, including retirement, disability, and survivor benefits.

Eligibility for the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is for Canadian citizens who have contributed during their working years.

Age Requirement: Eligibility for CPP retirement benefits starts at age 60, but you can delay until age 70 to receive increased benefits.

Contribution Amounts:  The amount you receive in retirement depends on how much you contributed during your working years.

To receive the highest CPP payment, you'll need to make the maximum contributions for at least 39 years.

CPP retirement benefits can start as early as age 60 or be delayed until age 70 for increased benefits.

You can apply for CPP benefits online through the My Service Canada Account, by phone, or in person at a Service Canada Centre.

When applying for CPP, you'll need to provide certain documents, such as your SIN (social insurance number), age proof, residence proof, etc.

When you submit your CPP application, all provided information and documentation are verified by Service Canada.

You will receive a decision letter outlining the details of your CPP benefits,  the benefit amount and when payments will start.
