Frequently asked questions about Alberta

Alberta offers diverse retirement options catering to various preferences and lifestyles. Urban areas provide a vibrant environment, plenty of cultural events, healthcare facilities, and active communities for seniors. Meanwhile, smaller towns offer tranquil settings with stunning landscapes, ideal for retirees who appreciate a slower pace and a tight-knit community atmosphere.

In Alberta, seniors with low incomes can receive financial aid through the Canada Pension Plan, Old Age Security, and the Guaranteed Income Supplement to help with monthly living expenses. They also enjoy premium-free coverage for prescription drugs and additional health services not covered by the AHCIP. Eligible seniors further benefit from assistance with basic dental and optical services costs.

There is no set retirement age in Alberta. The age of 65 is considered the normal retirement age for PSPP. You can start receiving your pension as early as age 55. Generally, starting benefits earlier results in lower monthly payments, while delaying benefits increases your monthly amount.

In Alberta, seniors benefit from the Alberta Health Care Insurance Plan, which covers all necessary physician and hospital services without charge. Additional support is available through the Alberta Seniors Benefit program, which provides financial assistance to lower-income seniors to help with living costs. Seniors in Alberta can also access the Coverage for Seniors program, which provides free prescriptions and other health-related services, ensuring comprehensive health coverage.

Begin by assessing your specific retirement needs and preferences, including the level of medical care required, desired amenities, and location. It is important to consider where family members are living and factor that into your choice. Conduct thorough online research to explore different retirement facilities which includes reading reviews and testimonials. Finally, visit the top contenders in person to get a firsthand feel for the environment, interact with staff and current residents, and ensure the home meets your expectations.
