Am I entitled to the minimum pension (“talon”)? How much is it? How is it awarded?

You are entitled to the minimum pension (“talon”) if you have accrued a total of at least 9,000 days of contributions to your CRPN career (add together your Time accrued through contributions + Time accrued through buyback which appear on your career history statement; you can check this when you log in to your personal account).

The gross monthly minimum pension (“talon”) for a claim in 2021 amounts to 0.1854 multiplied by your number of days of contributions.

The minimum pension (“talon”) is awarded automatically if you meet the length-of-career requirement and the amount of your entitlements is below that of the minimum pension (“talon”) calculated for your number of days of contributions. You do not need to apply to CRPN to receive this benefit.
