Hello. I want to ask a specific question regarding my qualifying period. I had a back injury back in 2016. Till Feb 2018, I worked full time and managed the pain. In Feb 2018 I went on STD for a few weeks. After returning back to work I was still dealing with significant amount of pain. I again managed to work full time till September 2018. In September 2018 I had a back surgery after which I became totally disabled and couldn’t return to work. I have been on LTD since than.
I have CPP contributions from Year 2014 to 2019. There was only a small amount of CPP contribution for 2019 because I didn’t use my vacation in 2018 and the company had to pay me that amount so a small portion of CPP contribution was made. Now based on this, I am applying for CPPD in 2021. Do I fall in the minimum qualifying period if I use Sep 2018 as my disability onset?
@David_Brannen if you could kindly advise, I would really appreciate it.
