When is the best time to access your Canada Pension Plan benefits?
In 2012 the Federal Goverment introduced changes to how and when you can access your CPP benefits. Although some of the changes were good, the fine print makes this decision even tougher than it was before. In most cases, some professional guidance is required in order to decide what is right for you.
Over the past several years, our Federal Government has made many changes to the Canada Pension Plan.
Most Recently in 2019 they introduced the Canada Pension Plan Enhancement.
This enhancement means that you and your employers will now have to pay an additional 2% into CPP by 2023 and even more in 2025.
