How to change your address with the CPP and the OAS?

To change your address with the CPP and the OAS, you will have two options, depending on how you registered for the program in the first place :

  • If you did not register online : that means that you submitted a paper application. Therefore, you can contact the CPP and OAS directly by phone (1-800-277-9914, Toll-free), or send a letter to the nearest Service Canada office. You can find a list of offices here. If you chose to call the CPP, make sure you have your Social Insurance Number (SIN) in hand.
  • If you registered online : you just have to log in to My Service Canada Account (MSCA) on the government’s website. When you’re logged in to your personal profile, you can change your address by clicking on “View/change my address”. Sometimes the change may take a few days to be effective. If you need your address do be updated today, you should contact the CPP by phone (1-800-277-9914, Toll-free).

Where can I find my access code ?

If you’re already receiving Employment Insurance, CPP, or Old Age Security, you already have an access code. If you don’t remember it, you can find it on the mail you received from Service Canada when you applied for those benefits. You can also request a new code via the government’s website.
