Some provinces have special nuances to the tax structure - particularly PQ. I am not a financial professional and do not sell any stocks, bonds, or funds. I do not provide specific financial advice. There are no explicit or implicit recommendations. This calculator is intended to help investors who ultimately make their own decisions.

  Assumptions: Drop-out years are assumed to be applied to the first years after age 18 when income tends to be lower due to time training. No divorce or CPP splits previously, no drop-out periods where not contributing. Then annual contributions at the adjusted pensionable earnings level or higher after age 25 up to retirement age. Adjusted for inflation.

If you die after age 65 and have a spouse/dependent, they can get a CPP survivor benefit of up to 60% of your CPP. It is less if under age 65.
  If they have their own CPP, their benefit cannot exceed the maximum for an individual. If no spouse or dependent, the CPP has no residual value to your estate.
