I was injured in 2012, and worked until my first surgery in 2014. I made my first application to CPP disability in 2015, which was denied. (doc didn’t respond to CPP requests). I did appeal and that was denied and I didn’t take it any further as I was hopeful there was an end of my struggles in sight.
My chronic pain has only worsened and I have not worked at all since 2014.
I re-applied for CPP-D in July of this year and they told me over the phone today that I have been approved for benefits as of Sept 20/2017. They have not updated the system with amounts etc.
What can I expect (if anything) for any retro payments?
Because I was denied in 2015, and didn’t reapply until July 2017…does that mean I do not qualify for any retro payments?
Any insight that you can provide would be appreciated. At the same time I am grateful they have now accepted me and I can expect some assistance. Your book for obtaining CPP-D benefits was a great help in securing benefits. Thank you.
