CPPD General Tribunal Appeals current processing time


Hello David,
I looked for information on processing times for General Tribunal Appeals division. Based on your experience, how long does it usually go on this stage (given documents submitted on time and notice of readiness form signed)? And then the last appeal-hearing, what is the timeline on that one?

I have not gone there yet, still in reconsideration stage but just wanted to know if it is worth pursuing it after this second stage
Thank you


Hi There, I just want to correct your language here. I know what you are saying, but you are mixing up the terminology a bit.

You are talking about the Social Security Tribunal (SST) General Division. This is the division that does the first level hearings at the SST. The SST Appeals division is a second tier hearing within the SST, and it handles appeals form the SST General Division Hearings.

Once you file the notice of readiness you are generally looking at 1-3 months for the hearing to be assigned a date, and then another 1-3 months for the actual hearing to happen. This is a rough guide.
