• Canada Pension Plan (CPP)

    Were you were born in the years 1947 to 1951? If you have not retired yet, you should pay particular attention to four changes to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP).

    The changes became law on December 15, 2009. Most take effect in 2012. Some workers born in the 1947-1951 years might wish to start drawing CPP retirement benefits before 2012 to have the old rules apply. Most may prefer the new rules.

    Canadian Pension Plan

    Finance Minister Jim Flaherty appears to be backtracking on his support for an expanded Canada Pension Plan (CPP) in the lead up to the finance ministers meeting Dec. 19 and 20 in Alberta.

    Instead of making higher CPP benefits the top priority, Flaherty wants to create a pooled private RRSP system which is bad for Canadians—but good for Canadian banks and mutual fund companies.

    We need your help. Canadians don't need the banks and financial industry getting another opportunity to gouge them out of their hard earned savings. We need leadership from our governments. Please visit CUPE's online action centre to send one final message to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Finance Minister Jim Flaherty, reminding them doubling CPP is the best and most efficient way to help Canadians save more for their retirement and solve the pension crisis - and please share this message with your friends and co-workers.
