Participation in the Old Age Security program - National Household Survey / Edouard Imbeau.: Em12-69/2020E-PDF

"The Old Age Security (OAS) program is the first pillar of Canada's retirement income system, providing a basic pension to nearly all seniors, and a supplement to low-income seniors. The OAS program provides a modest base upon which individuals may add income from other sources, such as the Canada or Quebec Pension Plan (C/QPP), retirement pensions and personal savings. The benefits under the OAS program include the OAS pension, the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) and the Allowances. This paper examines the take-up of OAS benefits, among those who are eligible, and the financial situation of beneficiaries of the Allowances. This study is a part of the overall work being conducted for the evaluation of the OAS program – scheduled to be completed in 2018"--Introduction, page 4.
