CPP & EI overpayment

Recommended Posts

I was employed the first 4 months of the year and retired the remaining 8 months receiving CPP.

 

Because of a retirement lump sum payout I ended up paying the full annual contribution amount for both CPP and EI , even though I only should have paid for the four months I was working.

 

How do I get this money back? What forms do I use in Ufile? (I use Ufile online)

 

Any help is appreciated.

Thank you

 

(sorry, this should have been posted in the tax question section)

Contributions made to CPP and EI are based on earned income.

 

If during the first 4 months of work, your income is higher than $51,100, you have to contribute.

 

However, for the CPP there are other things to consider like your age for example.

 

Was your lump sum payment eligible for a transfer to an RRSP or RPP (Registered pension plan)?

Was the amount of the payment showing in box 66 or 67 of the T4?

Thanks for your reply Gabriel, not what I wanted to hear, but thank you nevertheless.

 

The lump sum was for archived vacation, so not eligible for transfer to RRSP or RPP (not in Box 66 or 67 on the T4)

Could you expand on this a little bit, I turned 65 this November, so when I retired in April I was still 64.

 

Thanks again
