CPP Rate Table 1

CPP Rate Table 1 provides a list of the annual Year's Maximum Pensionable Earnings (YMPE), Average Year's Maximum Pensionable Earnings (AYMPE), and Year's Basic Exemption (YBE) amounts under the Canada Pension Plan (CPP). The information is required to calculate your CPP benefit, as described in How to Calculate Your CPP Retirement Pension, written by Doug Runchey for the retirehappy.ca website. The links originally referred to in the article no longer have all of the information required for the calculation.

Here is a PDF version of CPP Rate Table 1 for printing.

Note 1: AYMPE is normally a 3-year average pre-1998, a 4-year average for 1998 and a 5-year average post-1998.

Note 2: AYMPE is always a 3-year average if the contributor's date of birth is before Jan. 1, 1933 (grandfather protection), which results in higher maximums than indicated above, if applicable (for 1998 and later).

Note 3: Escalation figures for 1973 depended on the year that the benefit was effective, as follows:

Note 4: Contribution rate increase of 1.0% under the "enhanced CPP" starts in 2019 and is phased in over five years.

Note 5: New Year's Additional Maximum Pensionable Earnings (YAMPE) under the "enhanced CPP" starts in 2024 and is phased in over two years.

Note: Survivor benefits have a slightly different maximum if the contributor dies in December of the preceding year, because the Unadjusted Pensionable Earnings (UPE) amount is escalated to the year of death and then escalated by the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for January of following year.
