Canada Pension Plan Disability
The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is a benefit plan for workers. Workers who pay into the plan might get a disability pension if they can no longer work because of a disability. The amount of the pension depends on the pension credits the contributor earned while working. Pension credits are based on contributions.
To be entitled to a CPP disability pension you must have enough pension credits and be found to have a disability that is severe and prolonged.
Severe usually means that your disability prevents you from earning more than a small amount of income from work. Your disability can be physical, mental or both.
Prolonged means that your disability is likely to last for a long and unknown amount of time, or to eventually cause death.
