- Bear in mind that, like most pensions and annuities, CPP and OAS are income streams that "run out" or reduce upon the passing of a spouse, unlike personal assets that have both a survivor and estate benefits.
What does this mean?
- One thing the "delay CPP" crowd often forgets is the tricky issue of Survivor Benefits. We looked at this earlier this year but Diamond says that while you can receive both a CPP retirement pension and a survivor benefit, the sum of the two cannot exceed the maximum CPP retirement pension payable at age 65. So if both spouses wait until 65 or beyond and are at the maximum payout, there would be no CPP survivor benefit for the one who outlives the other. And OAS has no survivor benefit nor an estate value (CPP has a $2,500 death benefit).
- Should I collect CPP early?
You can begin collecting CPP as early as 60 or wait until 70 at the latest. However, the government will penalize you (subtract 0.6 per cent a month before 65 if you begin collecting early) or incentivize you (add 0.7 per cent a month after 65) if you defer it. To illustrate the difference, suppose your annual CPP benefit is $10,000 a year, if you begin collecting at 60, you'll be penalized $3,600 over the five years. Conversely, if you delay to 70, you'll collect an extra $4,200. Runchey says if you live to 80 (the normal life expectancy), it doesn't matter what age you start receiving benefits: "Based on the math, by 80 the total payouts will be about equal."

- By the end of the year you turn 71, you need to either convert your RRSP to a Registered Retirement Income Fund (RRIF) or purchase an annuity (a monthly payment from an insurance company in exchange for your RRSP savings).
