How to file/apply for disability benefits under the CPP

You have to fill in a very complicated disability application for CPP Disability. Incorrect filing of disability application forms are very often the cause for denied claims and disability is denied.

 

How to qualify for disability – CPP

To qualify for disability under CPP disability benefits, you must have made valid CPP contributions. For most people, this usually means making valid contributions in 4 of the last 6 years. In addition to this, you must also meet the program’s definition of a person with a disability which is severe and prolonged. This means you must have a physical and/or mental disability that is stopping you from any kind of gainful employment. Your maximum CPP benefit will depend on the amount of CPP contributions you have made; and is also affected by how many children you are caring for.

 

Common physical conditions for applying for disability include injuries or illness causing back pain, knee pain or degenerative conditions; pain conditions such as fibromyalgia disability or chronic pain. Common mental conditions include depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder.
