I became disabled with macular degeneration in March of 2016. I never heard of CPP disability until June of 2017. I applied and the application was received June 13th and they told me I was past the 15 month deadline, and declined me. I appealed and just got declined again… they said they are firm on their dates. I’m going blind and cannot work and have no savings…is there any hope…
I’ve never heard of a 15 month deadline and it is not on their website.
have a severe and prolonged disability;
be under the age of 65; and
meet the CPP contribution requirements.
To qualify for a CPP disability benefit, you must have contributed to the CPP in:
four of the last six years; or
three of the last six years if you have contributed for at least 25 years.
Contact Resolute for a free consult.
Sorry, the 15 month deadline is from when you started receiving your CPP (March 2016) and when you apply for your CPP Disability (June 2017).
Oh, you already get CPP.
I think there is nothing to do that I know of.
I would still contact Resolute, a lawyer might know a loophole.
