19 Canada Pension Plan (CPP) continued… Contributions are taken until you reach the Yearly Maximum Pensionable Earnings (YMPE) set at $51,100 for 2013. Once you have earned that value no further contributions will be deducted from your pay. You can access your contribution history and estimate of your pension at servicecanada.gc.ca Set up an My Service Canada Account Or you can call Service Canada and request a Statement of Contributions or a estimate of your pension
20 Canada Pension Plan (CPP) continued… You can receive your pension anytime between age 60 and age 70. The normal age is 65, and the pension will be adjusted up or down from there. For 2013 the maximum amount you can receive is $1,012.50, and the average amount paid out is $528.49.
21 Canada Pension Plan (CPP) continued… If you have direct deposit set up, the payment is deposited to your account on the third to last banking day of the month. You can receive your payment anywhere in the world CPP is taxable

You can receive it between the ages of 65 and 70. It will be increased for each month after the age of 65.
