When you decide to terminate your employment, the Government of Canada Pension Centre (Pension Centre) will require certain documents and forms from you to start the termination process to determine your pension entitlement.
When terminating employment you must also remember to notify your employer of your intention of leaving, as there may be other termination payments payable to you. Where possible, this should be done at least three months in advance of your termination date.
If you are on leave without pay and will not be returning to work prior to your termination of employment, the effective date of your cessation of employment will be the day following the date the Pension Centre is notified by your employer of your termination. If the Pension Centre is advised by your employer in advance of your termination date, the effective date of your termination will be the date indicated by your employer.
