Contribution requirements


#1

In regards to my wife’s eligibility for CPP disability: The Government of Canada website indicates that for her to be eligible she must have contributed CPP in four of the last six years.
In my wife’s case she left her part-time work about 4 years ago because of deterioration in her health and because she had to care for our disabled daughter (who is now 25 years old), so as a caregiver she was not able to work.
My wife has had epilepsy most of her life but her health condition now is such that she is not able to work, especially as it is aggravated by her also having irritable bowel and osteoporosis.
Can you tell me whether she may be eligible to apply for CPP disability?

Apply and find out.
There is a late applicant provision and a child rearing provision (might have age limits of children).
