Hey there, Hustlers! Are you or a loved one nearing the golden age of 65? If so, it’s time to talk about the Old Age Security (OAS) program, a cornerstone of Canada’s retirement income system. This April, eligible seniors are set to receive up to $1,850 per month¹. Let’s dive into what this means for you and how you can ensure you’re in the loop for these payments.

Understanding OAS Payments

The OAS program provides a monthly payment to seniors who meet certain residency and legal status requirements. As of April 2024, the confirmed deposit date for these payments is April 26⁷. But what does it take to be eligible, and how can you check if your payment is on its way?

Eligibility Criteria for OAS

To qualify for OAS, you must be 65 years of age or older, a Canadian citizen or legal resident, and have lived in Canada for at least 10 years after turning 18[^10^]. If you’ve been contributing to the Canadian fabric for decades, it’s time for Canada to give back to you.

How Much Will You Receive?

The amount you receive from OAS can vary, but the maximum monthly payment amount is currently pegged at $1,850¹. This figure is adjusted quarterly to account for changes in the cost of living, so it’s always a good idea to stay updated with HustleHub for the latest figures.
