Avoid delays with direct deposit

Did you know your cheques could be delayed in the event of a flood, a labour disruption or even a snow storm? If getting your money on time is important to you, enrol in direct deposit for your Government of Canada payments. Your payments will be deposited on time in your bank account. To enrol, you may call the Pension Centre at 1‑855‑502‑7090 or send them a written request with a void cheque:

Public Works and Government Services Canada
Government of Canada Pension Centre – Mail Facility
PO Box 8500
Matane QC G4W 0E2

Benefits of direct deposit

Fast and convenient - Your money is quickly deposited into your account and immediately available to you.

Secure - Unlike cheques, there is virtually no risk of your payment being lost, stolen or damaged.

Reliable and on time - As soon as the payment is issued, it is deposited into the account of your choice and may immediately begin to earn interest.
