The CPP and OAS/GIS payments for the month of December 2020 will be issued on December 22nd, 2020. Pensioners should expect to receive their payments within 2 business days if using direct deposit. If pensioners is receiving mail-in cheque, there will be potential delay for the delivery of the cheque due to higher delivery volume Canada Post has to handle during holiday season.

If you do not have direct deposit setup, you will have to call pension call centre before December 17th, 2020. Unfortunately, due to security reason, pensioner may no longer able to add/change direct deposit information through Canada.ca’s My Service Canada Account.
