You must file a tax return each year. The following paragraphs explain how to report your Old Age Security pension, your Québec Pension Plan or Canada Pension Plan benefits and your other benefits.

If you received pension benefits under either the QPP or the CPP, you must enter, on your income tax return, the amount shown in this respect on your RL-2 slip (see courtesy translation RL-2-T) or on your T4A(P) slip, if you did not receive an RL-2 slip.
If you received other retirement income, you must enter, on your tax return, the total of the benefits received from
