In filling out my CPP Disability forms I am not sure what to put as date I became disabled and last day worked.
Last day worked was Oct 3, 2013 then I went off on mat leave, baby born Nov. 2013. Was laid off with no job to return to. We decided to have another baby right away and second child born July 2016.
I have a diagnosed chronic disease, Ehlers-Dsanlos syndrome and have always had severe pain, taken off work a few times in my life to recover etc, etc but became severely disabled with muscle weakness in limbs, cannot walk, hold onto things, my thumbs are dislocating since just this past December 2016. So for Date Became Disabled I put December 2016 as this is when I decided to give up on the idea of trying to go back to work after my newborn becomes a bit older. It will be impossible for me as my disease is progressing so much.
Is it ok to have a date of when you became disabled when you are at home raising kids?? I have 5 years of full-time work from Sept 2008 to Oct.2013.
