Regular CPP Question

If I’m denied CPP-D, can I apply for regular CPP? I am eligible for regular CPP.

Ya but CPP-D is better and once you have been getting CPP for 12 months (I’m not sure of the time frame) you can’t switch to CPP-D anymore.
Best to keep appealing CPP-D.
Get EI Sick benefits while that goes on.

Thanks for this info.

the eligibility for CPP-D and CPP-R are much different. For CPP-R you just have to be age 60 or above and have made qualifying payments into the program. Jammer is right that CPP-D pays much more than CPP-R, so you should appeal that denial to try and get the CPP-D. You can’t receive CPP-D and CPP-R.
