The old age security pension

This pension, available to Canadians over 65, is base on monthly payments. To benefit of the OAS, you must meet certain conditions. This pension is taxable and you must consider it in your annual tax return.

Since this pension is indexable, the Consumer Price Index will affect the amount of your benefits.

Defer pension payments

However, delaying your old age security will prevent you from getting your guaranteed income supplement.
