CPP-D declared me disabled in April 2016 (after being on sick leave from work) but only received the decision lettre in Oct 2018. CRA website indicated that once you get CPP, the employer needs to reimburse the CPP contributions back to the time you were found disabled. The employer should fill form PD24 and check the square that indicate the reason of the refund Worker considered disabled under CPP or QPP" “date worker was considered disabled”. So CRA can adjust the income taxe and refund the employer for the overpaid CPP contribution and (I think the employee). Unless the employer needs to fill up a new T4 too?
From the website canada.ca
“Your employee is considered to be disabled under CPP
An employee who is considered to be disabled under the CPP does not have to contribute to the CPP. Deduct CPP contributions up to and including the last pay dated in the month in which the employee becomes or is considered to be disabled according to the letter that Service Canada sent to the employee. When prorating, use the number of months up to and including the month the employee is considered to be disabled.”
My former employer refuses to fill up this form and its impacting numerous employees on sick leave who receive CPP disability or leaving on medical discharge.
In my case its about 23 months I overpaid in CPP that could be reimbursed. But if the employer refuses to fill up the PD24 what can I do to get my money back?
