Instructions to the Plan Member

  1. Completion of Form

    Care should be taken when completing this form since, under most circumstances, a service buyback is a binding, irrevocable agreement. Please ensure that the dates of the service which you enter are complete and accurate. If you have received more than one transfer value payment then the service of the most recent transfer value must be purchased in its entirety first.

  2. Forwarding of Form

    You must sign and forward your service buyback within one year from the date of issue of the "Notification of Plan Membership" (CF-FC 2018) that you have received.

    The completed service buyback form must be forwarded to the following address:

    Government of Canada Pension Centre - Mail Facility
    150 Dion Boulevard
    PO Box 9500 
    Matane QC G4W 0H3

  3. Payment Method

    Only payments received within 90 days of the date the service buyback is received by the Minister will be accepted and used to calculate the pensionable service that can be reinstated.

  4. Past Service Pension Adjustment (PSPA)

    A PSPA must be calculated for all buybacks with post-1989 service. Where the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) does not approve the PSPA, the service buyback will be declared invalid.
