  • Have Your Disability Benefits Been Terminated?

    August 10, 2018

    The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) entitles people who have made enough contributions to the plan to receive benefits when they are unable to work. These benefits extend to their dependent children as well. The aim of these benefits is to replace a portion of the earnings of contributors who have suffered prolonged or permanent disability.

    Information is compiled based on inputs from treating doctors, the applicant, employers etc. and a profile is created. Based on this profile, a test of employability is evaluated rather than medical eligibility and suitable compensation is awarded. In many cases, benefits are denied outright from the application stage itself. They may be terminated on the date of the “change of definition” – this means that at that particular point, you are not eligible to receive these benefits any longer. There are different medical, legal and insurance issues involved in this complex situation. You and your family need the advice, assistance and advocacy of a highly-trained, skilled and knowledgeable disability claims lawyer. There is a huge backlog of appeals and it may be difficult to work through the court system in a timely manner. You are also entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against the at-fault party responsible for your accident/injuries.

    We can help you put together a robust claim to take care of your present and future needs. We also ensure that your rights and entitlements are protected and that all avenues and legal recourses are explored to get you the compensation you deserve.
