Starting in 2012, the federal and provincial governments are making a series of changes to the Canada Pension Plan that affect employees aged between 60 and 70. These changes permit CPP and QPP contributions for employees when CPP or QPP retirement benefits are received, before employees turn 70 years of age. These changes bring the CPP into line with similar changes made to the QPP in 1997.The purpose, in part, is to offer more support to employees who wish to phase in their retirement.
The Nova Scotia government is in the process of finalizing amendments to the Pension Benefits Act to introduce phased-in retirement to the Nova Scotia labour force.
