What is Canada Pension Plan?
The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is for employees and self-employed people.
Every worker contributes to a pension plan which will provide them with a pension once they reach retirement age.
In the event that a worker or self-employed individual becomes disabled, they will be entitled to disability benefits in case they are unable work.
The CPP also provides benefits to the spouses and children of deceased CPP participants.
You may also be entitled to receive a portion of the pension contributions of your ex-spouse or former common-law partner if you’re divorced or separated.
