Completing Form ISP-1000 can be a time-consuming process since the document consists of eight pages. It includes the form itself and a page where individuals can find the addresses of Canada Service Offices. The form contains parts that include the following:

  1. Information About the Applicant. In the first part of the document, an individual can designate their full name, social insurance number, date of birth, country of birth, home address, and other personal information. This information is required for identification and notification purposes.
  2. Payment Information. Individuals can use this part of the form to provide their banking information, which can include their account number, the name on the account, institution number, etc. They can also state when they want their pension to start.
  3. Children. Here, the individual is supposed to indicate whether they have any children that were born after 1958. If so, they can indicate their full names, social insurance numbers, dates of birth, and other information. This information is necessary since individuals who have children born after 1958 are entitled to receive a higher pension amount.
  4. Benefits From Other Countries. If the individual has lived or worked in another country, then they can be eligible to receive benefits from that country. In this case, they can designate the name of the country, the period during which they lived or worked there, and mark whether they have applied for benefits there.
