Many of our clients have been denied Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D) upon first application. This is not surprising since over 60% of initial applications are denied.
However, with our help, many clients succeed in getting CPP-D benefits by requesting a reconsideration within the timeline specified in the rejection letter.
What do we do in the reconsideration letter?
- We look carefully at the specific reasons Service Canada gives for the rejection and we address those reasons directly.
- We provide a clear explanation of the disabilities suffered by the client, in plain English, and reference the supporting medical records.
- We explain how with those medical problems, the client does meet the “severe and prolonged” definition in the CPP legislation.
- We attach all relevant medical records.
If you have been denied CPP-Disability and would like our law firm’s help to seek a reconsideration, please contact us at 613 233-4529.
