Canada Pension Plan Post-Retirement Benefit (PRB) - After you’ve applied

6. After you’ve applied

The PRB will be paid to you automatically the year after your contributions, effective January 1st of every year.

Since we need employer contribution information from the CRA, the first payment will usually be issued in early April and will include a lump sum payment back to January.

The PRB is paid monthly. Each year that a new PRB is generated, the amount will be added to your CPP retirement pension and issued as a single payment.

Note: Separate PRB and QPP payments

If you are receiving a retirement pension from the QPP and are eligible for a PRB from the CPP, your PRB payment will be paid separately.
