The retired seniors and disabled citizens will be able to claim the payment after qualifying the eligibility criteria. On continuing to this post, you will be able to get all the details about CPP and OAS payments dates for the month of July 2024. Read the full post to learn more about the CPP and OAS pension along with the maximum payment amount you can claim and its eligibility criteria.

CPP OAS Payment Dates July 2024

For the financial welfare of its citizens in their retirement age and unemployment phase due to a disability, the CRA manages a number of monetary support programs which aim to provide monthly benefits to the citizens who are qualified as per the CRA guidelines. Two of the major programs are CPP and OAS which are considered as a major source of income for millions of retired, old aged and disabled citizens in the country. To be able to claim the CPP payment, you must be at least 60 years old whereas if you are receiving the OAS pension, your age must be at least 65 years or above. The payment amount will depend on your age of retirement and for how long and how much you have contributed to the CRA benefits.

The CRA asks its citizens to contribute to the CPP while working in their employment age. Meanwhile, if you are claiming the OAS benefits, then the CRA will not check your employment criteria to determine the pension you are entitled to claim. It means you can receive the OAS payments even though you have never worked or are still working. In addition to it, if you are receiving OAS payments, then you and your spouse or common law partner are eligible to receive other benefits such as Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS), Allowance and Allowance for Survivors. You can apply for the payments after qualifying the eligibility criteria. The payment amount is directly deposited to the respective bank accounts of the recipients on the scheduled payment dates.

How Much You Can Claim Under CPP and OAS Payments?

The OAS payments are reviewed on a quarterly basis to keep up with the inflation and rising cost of living in the months of January, April, July and October and the amount you are entitled to claim will depend on your age. On the other side, the CPP payment amount is based on three factors which are (i) your retirement age (ii) how much and how long you have contributed to CPP in your employment years (iii) your earnings throughout your working period. If you choose to work in your post-retirement age, the CRA will provide you additional benefits till you turn 70 years old. However, the contribution limit must not exceed the limit or in other case, your pension amount may reduce. As of 2024, the maximum CPP payment you can claim is $1,364.60 and the average monthly payment as of April 2024 is $816.52 at age 65. I have also provided the monthly OAS payments in the following table:
