CPP Disability Benefits

If you work long enough at a job which contributes to the Canada Pension Plan, and become disabled for any reason, you are probably eligible for CPP disability benefits.

In order to be eligible for benefits, you must have a disability severe enough to keep you from working in any regular paying job for an indeterminable duration, which comes under the “Prolonged” category.

Basically, to be eligible for this disability benefit you must be found to have a disability severe enough preventing you from performing ANY KIND OF WORK permanently.
