Retired member—Canadian Armed Forces pensions

Find information about your Canadian Armed Forces pension plan as a retired member.

Class Action Proceedings

The Federal Court has certified a class proceeding involving delayed payment of certain Canadian Forces Superannuation Act pension benefits between 2007 and 2017. If you served in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), with at least some of that service in the Reserve Force, and released from the CAF between 2007 and 2017, you may be a member of the Class. If the class proceeding succeeds at trial, or is settled, you may be entitled to a payment. You can obtain more information about the class proceeding at the website created by Class Counsel: Canadian Forces Delayed Pension Class Action
