Just to add to this. You'll receive IRB til 65, at 65 you can be still eligible to receive it for life but at 70% instead of 90% of release salary.

You are still allowed to earn up to $20k gross each year with no reductions in your benefit.

More info is here. https://www.veterans.gc.ca/GCWeb/pdf/Factsheets/IRB.pdf

Although if on SISIP you won't be able to get the $20k.
