CPP Disability Benefits
No one wishes for a disability that renders them unable to work. However, we have little control over these things. If you or someone you know has been affected by a disability that affects your ability to work and earn an income, you are eligible to receive disability benefits. However, many people do not know how to apply for the benefits, some have tried applying but have been denied, while some others receive disability benefits from a private insurance company but the amount is insufficient to cater for their basic needs. If you belong to any of these categories or you have any other issue concerning CPP disability benefits application, you can trust our experienced lawyers to help you find a swift solution to your challenge.
What is a CPP disability benefit?
The Canada Pension Plan disability benefit is a monthly stipend given to individuals that are unable to work due to a disability and have contributed to Canada Pension Plan. The Social Security Tribunal and/or Service Canada are the boards in charge of administering CPP disability benefit claims.
Who is eligible for CPP disability benefit?
Before an individual can be considered eligible for CPP Disability Benefits, the said individual’s disability must be ‘severe’ and ‘prolonged’ as contained in the CPP legislation. Also, the individual must have contributed to the CPP in at least four of the 6 years preceding the disability or at least three of the six years preceding the disability if the individual has previously contributed for 25 years or more.
