## Max CPP retirement pension for 2014

Now that Revenue Canada has announced the 2014 YMPE (Year's Maximum Pensionable Earnings) for CPP as being \$52,500, it is possible to calculate the maximum age-65 CPP retirement pension for 2014, and it will be \$1,038.33.

Service Canada probably won't officially release this rate until sometime in December, but it's a simple calculation once you know the 5-year average YMPE ending in 2014 (the new 5-year average is \$49,840). From that figure you simply divide by 12 and multiply by 25%
(\$49,840 / 12 x 25% = \$1,038.33).

Using this same 5-year average YMPE of \$49,840, it's also possible to calculate how much each year of max earnings will generate towards an age-65 CPP retirement pension in 2014, and the answer is \$26.62 monthly (\$49,840 / 39 yrs / 12 mths x 25% = \$26.62).
