Canada Pension Plan (CPP)The Canada Pension Plan is a contributory, earnings-related social insurance program. It ensures a measure of protection to a contributor and his or her family against the loss of income due to retirement, disability and death.
There are three kinds of CPP plan benefits:
- retirement pension;
- disability benefits (which include benefits for disabled contributors and benefits for their dependent children); and
- survivor benefits (which include the death benefit, the survivor's pension and the children's benefit).
