This enactment amends the Canada Pension Plan so that a person who applies for a pension after reaching seventy years of age would in all cases be able to receive retroactive payments starting from their seventieth birthday, rather than the current maximum of twelve months.
The enactment also provides for full retroactive payments of a disability pension, survivor’s pension, disabled contributor’s child’s benefit or orphan’s benefit, rather than the current maximum of fifteen months in the case of a disability pension and twelve months in the case of a survivor’s pension, disabled contributor’s child’s benefit or orphan’s benefit.
The enactment also requires that interest be paid on the arrears.
