Good Morning, I applied for CPP Disability and they received it on Jan 14, 2022. I was told a few weeks ago that a medical decision was made on Apr 29 and this is the same day a letter went out to me asking for my childs birth certificate which I sent a few days later via my service canada account. I have not received any further communications since. I was told on Friday June 03rd that the notes do not say if it was approved or denied. Every person I speak too tells me something different. On Friday I was told they cannot escalate this until 150 days. I was told could take up to 180 days. Is this normal to take this long? I have not received any letters at all from them. I just keep getting told its in a different department now. Anyone have any suggestions?Advise? Thank you so much.
A decision in 4 months is really fast.
Thank you for your reply. Given they have not requested any information other than birth certificate. Is this a good indication that it was approved?
I just got approved 2 weeks ago and i applied in Sept 2021, so 8 months. I’d say youve got a while to wait yet.
Approval times are all over the map as Crissy’s took a bit longer, I was fortunate, mine fell under the 120 day mark at around day 100. Depends a lot of which medical adjudicator the case lands on and how busy they are, their holiday time, sick time etc. I would also agree that the fact they asked for your children’s birth certificate would be a good sign. If you are going to be denied why would they even need the birth certificates. I think you are probably looking at an approval and the child benefit portion of the CPPD a good component of CPPD as I have that included in my CPPD.
Is it a call or letter advising of the decision?
Thank you for the replies. I am so happy I found this forum. So much information and support.
In my case it was a phone call with 1 question asked to me which was have I gone back to work and when a replied ‘no’ they then told me I was approved for CPPD and told my monthly amount and backdate amount. I then received my approval letter in the mail.
Update…I received a call this morning from CPPD and was told I was approved and they gave me my breakdown and said I could go online to view the details and also a letter would be going out to me. I just looked at My Service Canada account but all it says is Completed. I am guessing it takes a few days for the information to update on my account? Just wanted to say thank you for your support as well. I am so happy and relieved the wait is over. Good news today. Great way to start the weekend.
Wonderful news. Look under payments section and you will see your backpay and your first regular monthly CPPD posted shortly if not already posted. I still remember my call and the huge sigh of relief when told I was approved.
So glad you got good news. It is a huge relief and I am glad you can rest a little easier now. I too remember the weight being lifted off my shoulders when I was approved.
It’s a big relief.
