Questions about CPP, OAS to be answered in Coquitlam

Pre-retirement primer from Service Canada at Dogwood Pavillion

Anyone feeling it's time to leave the workforce may be interested in a pre-retirement primer in Coquitlam later this month.

The seminar on Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Old Age Security (AS) will be presented by Service Canada at the Dogwood Pavillion (1655 Winslow Ave.) on Monday, Sept. 30, from 1 to 3 p.m.

It will cover pension sharing, credit splitting, changes in 2012 reducing CPP if taken early, death and survivor benefits, and OAS allowance and guaranteed income benefits. The information will be delivered by Dianne Stoesz, a citizen's services specialist for Service Canada.

It's free but pre-registration is required by calling 604-927-4386 or in person at one of Coquitlam's recreation facilities.
