Maximum CPP Contribution | CPP Deduction 2010
At the beginning of the year 2010, the lowest rate of the two possible rates of contribution to the public service pension plan is used until the maximum level of contribution for that rate is reached. Then, the higher rate of contribution is used for the remainder of the year. Beginning with the new year, public service pension plan contributions recommence at the low rate, until such time as they reach the maximum level of the contributions for the low rate. Therefore, if you are a contributor under the public service pension plan and you compare your last pay in December to your first pay in January, you may see that you have paid a larger amount to the plan in December than in January.
Many employees reach their maximum level of Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Quebec Pension Plan (QPP) contributions sometime during the year. If you reach the maximum level of CPP/QPP, you will see an increase in the amount of your net pay as there will no longer be CPP/QPP deductions withheld. Beginning with the new year, you will recommence paying CPP/QPP contributions until such time as you reach the maximum CPP/QPP contribution level for 2010.
