Canada Pension Plan Top Up – The Child Rearing Provision

Individuals who left the work force, or had low earnings because they were caring for a child under the age of seven may be able to qualify for benefits or increase their Canada Pension Plan Benefits.

To qualify the individual must have either not worked or had low earnings while being the primary caregiver of a child under the age of seven who was born after December 31, 1958. Additionally, either you or your spouse must have received Family Allowance payments or have been eligible to receive the Canada Child Tax Benefit.

To request the Child Rearing Provision you are required to complete the prescribed form and provide some supporting documents. If the eligible individual is deceased, the estate should apply at the same time as applying for the Canada Pension Plan death or survivor benefit.
