Canada Pension Plan (CPP) Disability Benefits
If you contributed to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) Disability Benefits plan while working and become totally disabled, you might qualify for this benefit.
If so, our claims administrator, Manulife, will require you to apply.
The advantages to you of receiving a CPP disability pension are:
It freezes your financial earnings as of the date of disability. This prevents CPP from establishing a record of zero or nil earnings to average into your future retirement or disability income calculation for the period you are disabled from working and not contributing to the CPP fund. Without this earning freeze your future entitlement to CPP benefits, including retirement benefits, could be adversely affected.
