Applying for a Retirement Pension under the Québec Pension Plan

Clientele
A person age 60 or over who has contributed for at least one year to the Québec Pension Plan

Note
It is not necessary to have stopped working to be entitled to a retirement pension.

Restrictions
A person in one of the following situations is not entitled to a retirement pension before age 65:

  • He or she is receiving an unreduced income replacement indemnity from the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail.
  • He or she is entitled to an indemnity from the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec and is recognized as having the same disability by Retraite Québec.

To apply for a retirement pension under the Québec Pension Plan, one may either:

  • use the Application for a Retirement Pension under the Québec Pension Plan online service (ClicSÉQUR account authentication required), or
  • fill out the Application for a Retirement Pension form and mail it to Retraite Québec.

The Application for a Retirement Pension under the Québec Pension Plan online service can also be accessed through My Account online service (ClicSÉQUR account authentication required), if registered.

To estimate the amount of a retirement pension, the applicant can use the My Account online service or view your Statement of Participation.

Note
A person who is being paid a disability pension does not need to apply for a retirement pension, as it will automatically replace his or her disability pension at age 65.
