Part 2—Canadian Forces Service

  1. To receive an Immediate Annuity (pension), a Regular/Reserve Force member must complete 25 years of Canadian Forces Service (this includes periods of previous Reserve and Regular Force service). Canadian Forces Service is counted as actual time served and when earnings (pay) have been received for the period served. For example, a Reserve member may have a one full year of Pensionable Service but only a few weeks Canadian Forces Service. As long as a member works one day in a year, they are credited with a year of Pensionable Service. A Reserve member is only credited with the days actually worked in the year as Canadian Forces Service.
  2. For Regular Force members, Canadian Forces Service is the total time service plus Reserve time, if applicable.
  3. Canadian Forces service is calculated as follows:
    1. All periods of Regular Force service (all time is counted one for one);
    2. Class A - Total all Class A days worked, half days are to be added together to get the equivalent of one full (training) day. The total number of days will be rounded up to the next integer, then multiplied by 1.4;
    3. Class B and C - Total all Class B and C days together, they are one for one; and
    4. Add Regular and Reserve Service (Class A, B and C) together. This will give the total Canadian Forces Service the member has
