#2

They sometimes take longer than 4 months.
4 months is when you can call.
My approval took 4 monrhs almost exactly.

I hope it goes well.


#3

im such a mess here waiting to find out …seen all the comments about checking the status of your claim on msca ,tried that cant get on…my doctor tells me most denied ppl find out b4 their 120 days …i hope hes right ,anyone got any insight into that?


#4

what happens next jammer after your approved?


#5

I would think most denials would happen before 4 months ut anything could happen.
With the Canada Post strikes, mail migh get delayed.

After you get approved, you’ll get direct deposit or a cheque (I hope you get direct deposit from the CRA) each month (roughly 3 days before the end of each month).
My retroactive payment went directly to the insurance company (depends on your situation).
CPP-D is taxable so you get a T form at the end of the year.

thanks jammer for responding ,its nice to have someones who understands ,well dont know if this good or bad ,but i finally got into my service canada acount ,shows my claim as in progress ,today is my 120 days ,im scared to find out ,if its no im gonna be so heart broken

The status just means it’s on someone’s desk.
If you phone you may get someone nice who tells you more.
Make has been sent for medical analysis.
Try not to do “what ifs”, deal with whatever when it happens.
Apparently a lot of people get denied the 1st time.
My friend got denied the first time and it seemed like they didn’t even read his application because the reasons they gave were answered in the original application.
His appeal was “see the answer on page x”.
I was approved 1st time though.
So who knows, it might depend on who reads it and if they are having a good day.
I would definitely phone.
Good luck.

i called the lady was very nice couldnt tell me much but she put a reminder on line that my 120 days is up someone should contact me by 15 more buisness days or i can call back on november 30


#9

She wouldn’t even say where in the process your application is?
Given the mail strike, I hope they will rely less on mail.
I received a letter (unrelated to disability) Nov 7 that was sent Oct 29.
More waiting, I’m sorry it is stressful.


#10

couldnt tell me nothing i couldnt already see on my service canada account ,im really hoping most denials dont happen after the 120 day time period


#11

Call them up Then be patient when I recieved my cppd I had to send to my insurance company who was paying me Then I got to pay the taxes on it $20,000.00 So sometimes the wait not that golden Good luck yes they drag there feet and if you call be polite
