You should discuss what a typical day looks like for you


#1

The applying for CPP-D guide says “You should discuss what a typical day looks like for you.”.
Is that referring to a day while I was working or now?


#2

now-not when you were working. Do you have anyone that can help you or look over


#3

Good it’s now, I don’t remember when I was working.

Nope, no one to read over it.
If it was simply answering the questions then I could find someone but it took me a long time to write and it would take anyone I could get a long time to read it.
I’m at the point where I just want the doctor to do his part so I can submit it just to get a break (until they respond).

I left a message for my insurer, I still don’t have details of what I get and when (I’m pretty sure I get something June 30 but I have no idea if they are deducting the cpp-d I don’t get).


#4

I wrote exactly everything in a typical day. Although that was feb and no response as of yet.


#5

With my husbands application I included 6 weeks of his pain/fatigue and activity tracker. I printed off the pages from psychology tools ( has a weekly page with one hour time blocks)


#6

As opposed to typical day, I like people to discuss ranges between good and bad days so there is a better representation. This will protect you in case the insurer had surveillance of you on a day when you are functioning better that what you described for a “typical day”
