Effect of pension income splitting on federal, provincial and territorial benefits, credits, programs, and instalments.
For the purposes of the joint election to split pension income, the pensioner is the individual who receives eligible pension income and who elects to allocate part of that income to his or her spouse or common-law partner (the pension transferee).
For the purposes of the joint election to split pension income, the pension transferee is the individual to whom is allocated part of the eligible pension income of his spouse or common-law partner (the pensioner).
Only one joint election can be made for a tax year. If both you and your spouse or common-law partner have eligible pension income, you will have to decide which one of you will act as the pensioner and elect to allocate part of their eligible pension income to his or her spouse or common-law partner (the pension transferee).
