Wow… applied May 29th. Got my form letter back in July to say they had my application. Have not received anything else since then meaning no phone calls or letters. Online says “In Progess”. Called them today to see what is going on. Girl on phone said " Yes they have my application, it is past the 120 days and for me to call back in 15 business days (Dec 20th) for a RESTATUS UPDATE. Can someone tell me please if when they check their CPP information online can they see the tabs “payment information” and “direct deposit”. If so this is what I see… is this normal?
I Checked payment information which says: “You can view your amounts for the last two years for CPP. If you are in receipt of OAS, only your most recent monthly payment is displayed.” and nothing else.
Checked the direct deposit tab and it says "Payment Destination - " It can take up to 30 days for direct deposit changes to take effect. In order to ensure your next payment is sent to your new account, please ensure you provide us with your new banking information at least 30 days in advance of your payment date.The Canada Pension Plan and Old Age Security Act require that you report:
- a change in your marital status;
- the death of a benefit recipient;
- a change of custody of your child or children under the age of 18;
- your departure from Canada for more than one month;
- your return to Canada;
- your moving from one country to another
If any of the above situations apply to you, and you have not yet notified Service Canada, you must contact the Department for assistance.Failure to do so could result in an overpayment or non-receipt of benefits to which you may have been entitled.
NEW! Did you know you have the option of sharing your direct deposit banking information between Canada Pension Plan and the Canada Revenu Agency (CRA)?

THIS shows my banking information. I am wondering if other people who have applied see this also or is this a good sign I am being processed in finance? Sorry with Christmas coming up and all the expenses living off my credit line is becoming too much and do not understand why they cannot just tell me instead of now making me call back 5 days before Christmas. Thank you.
