Waiting 6 months no answer yet

Hi there everyone.

So my dr and I took three months to fully complete my cpp application. Mostly in part bc I have so many health issues it took numerous appts to complete over a period of time again due to my health limitations. Anyway my file is very detailed with numerous attached documents. I finally got a letter a month ago 5 plus months later stating they wrote to my employer requesting information and gave them one month. Today a month later cpp wrote to me again stating they did not hear from my employer and are giving them 21 more days and if they do not hear back with the information they requested they will decide on the information they have from me
My question is what could they be requesting from my employer they don’t already have?

Does anyone know?

Is it a good sign they didn’t contact my dr requesting more?

The exact same thing happened to me. I immediately contacted my insurer and my employer by email and asked the employer to send the forms ASAP and they did fill them in before the 21 days.

I don’t know what they asked my employer for but now you know you are not the only one.


I doubt it’s good or bad.

Contact HR of your employer.
Maybe even contact your insurance company if they asked you to apply for CPP-D.

Thank you for replying. How long have you waited?

There is a standard form they send to the employer. It asks details about your job duties, salary, attendance, whether you missed time for illness, whether they had to give you workplace accommodations, if your disability or illness affected your work, if they have work they think you could do, etc

Jammer is right, is not a good or bad sign they didn’t contact your doctor.
