My pension results in a T4A and a T4A-RCA being issued. Box 17 of the T4A-RCA states it is eligible for pension splitting. I can't find any way to add the two pensions.

My pension results in a T4A and a T4A-RCA being issued.

Box 17 of the T4A-RCA states it is "eligible for pension splitting".

 I can't find any way to add the Box 17 value on the T4A-RCA to the T4A pension amount  to do the pension splitting calculation on form T1032.

One way to force it is to enter the amount in Box 17 of the T4A-RCA  in Box 16 of a new T4A then it gets added to the amount eligible for pension splitting.  That's how I have dealt with it for the past two years and it was accepted by CRA.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
