When you file for bankruptcy your cost of bankruptcy is based on your total income. This total income would include cpp and old age pension. Now if you are below the poverty line you would qualify for the minimum cost of bankruptcy so your source of income wouldn’t make any difference. However, if your total income (including cpp and oas) put you above the allowable amounts set by the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy, then you would be subject to the surplus income calculation like everyone else.
