The Old Age Security (OAS) program is the Government of Canada’s largest pension program. It is funded out of the general tax revenues of the Government of Canada. This means that you do not pay into it directly.
The OAS pension is a monthly payment available to seniors aged 65 and older who meet the Canadian legal status and residence requirements. You may need to apply to receive it.
If you did not receive a letter from Service Canada informing you that you were selected for automatic enrollment, you must apply in writing for the Old Age Security pension. Complete and mail the Application for the Old Age Security Pension.
