Once you have registered for an online account you are able to establish log-in information for your My Service Canada pension plan. From there, you can view your estimated monthly payment amount. A My Service Canada account is a secure way to access your Service Canada benefits, which include employment insurance, the Canada pension plan and old age security, Service Canada explains.

The Canadian pension plan system is a system set up for Canadian residents to contribute money toward a plan that provides monthly benefits for individuals who paid into the plan once they retire. You must have worked and made at least one valid contribution to the pension plan to qualify for a retirement pension benefit, advises Service Canada. The standard age of retirement is 65, but you can take a permanently reduced pension payment as soon as you are 60 or take a permanently increased pension payment after the age of 65. If you become disabled after starting your retirement pension before age 65, you are not eligible to convert your pension benefit to a disability benefit.
