So my father is chronically ill, with stage 4 COPD, and his doctor asked him to signup for CPP Disability, he filled out all the forms, was recently hospitialized due to a lung infection that made him a prisoner in his own house for a week before finally getting admitted by a Doctor, in which he stayed for 4-5 days. He improved greatly and is seeking help through the COPD clinic in his hometown.
Upon applying for his CPP Disability he was taking in his CPP early because of his health was already declining and thought he wouldn’t make it to retirement age, he is currently 63 years old. He got a response from the Government today and called me right after it happened he was denied CPP Disability due to him already receiving CPP benefits.
I want him to appeal and he will but what can I do to help him get a better chance at this process, his time is limited and hes been working with a severe decreased lung capacity most of his late 55-60’s. I think for a guy whos put in so much into paying for CPP for so long and getting such a kick to the face from our great government(sarcasm).
He will have to continue to work basically until hes dead in his own words. He worked hard all his life as was a refridgeration mechanic, among many other trades throughout his life. Any help on this subject even if I have to pay for a lawyer to get him the comfort he needs to at least enjoy some of his remaining time. He does not want to go to a home, there is no room in the aged living spaces in his area.
Any information to get him to get a better chance at his appeal would be greatly appreciated.
