Last week we discussed 5 items to put on your funeral pre planning list. In keeping with this theme, I would like to share with you 4 Service Canada considerations with respect to budgeting the to-dos on your funeral pre-planning list.
I would recommend that you contact the Canadian Pension Plan and see how the changes introduced from 2011 to 2016 may give your more options as you make the transition from work to retirement. The Canadian Pension Plan (CPP) is administered through Service Canada and you may contact Service Canada or call them at 1-800-277-9914 toll free in Canada and the United States. If you require assistance for hearing or speech impairments, then call the TTY number at 1-800-255-4786. If you are calling outside of Canada or the United States, then please call 613-990-2244 and Service Canada will accept collect calls. Alternatively you could make an appointment and visit a Service Canada Centre.
