Line 206 – Pension adjustment

The pension adjustment (PA) amount is the value of the benefits you earned in 2017 under your employer's registered pension plans (RPP) and deferred profit sharing plans (DPSP), and possibly, some unregistered retirement plans or arrangements.

The amount is shown in box 52 of your T4, Statement of Remuneration Paid slip or box 034 of your T4A, Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity and Other Income slip.

Generally, the PA reduces your registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) deduction limit for the following year. You can find your RRSP deduction limit and more by logging in My Account or by going to MyCRA on your mobile device.

If you have questions about how your PA was calculated, contact your employer or RPP administrator.
