applying for CPP Disability Benefits - helpful resource
Here is an expensive, 80 page document from the MS Society of Canada re: eligibility for CPP (Canada Pension Plan) Disability Benefits for People with MS, as well as advice on how to apply and how to appeal if initially denied.
Really good info here, it may even be useful to those filing other types of disability claims, eg: employer group disability plans, SSDI in the U.S., etc.
This is a very useful tool for any Canadians finding themselves in the unfortunate position of having to apply for CCP disability. I stumbled upon this guide months after I had applied, and while I was approved to recieve CCPD, I would have had a much easier time with the aplication if I'd had the guide.
Is this info something that could be, or should be added to the health pages? If not its own HP, maybe a paragraph with a link added to an existing HP?
