Here, a couple wants to know exactly what can be claimed.


Q – Does the pension credit apply if you are on a pension other than CPP or OAS? – Earl & Kathlee M.


A – Actually, it does not apply to CPP and OAS – they are specifically excluded. The credit can be claimed for payments from any employer pension plan as well as for RRIF withdrawals if you are 65 or older. – G.P.
