CPP benefits may be available to disabled individuals

Though it may be hard to fathom, when someone suffers a serious injury, in an accident that leads to a permanent disability, their life will be changed forever. In addition to being emotionally and physically difficult to adapt to, it can also be expensive. Disabled individuals, who are unable to work as a result of the injury, may experience difficulties in paying these expenses.

In some cases, it is possible people who can no longer work as a result of disability, could secure benefits via the Canada Pension Plan. To obtain these benefits certain qualifications must be met. Specifically, the disability must be severe and prolonged. The disability, which may be physical or mental, must be expected to last for an unknown length of time or lead to death. Medical information submitted as a part of the application will be reviewed in making this determination.

The amount each person will receive depends upon their employment record. Depending upon how long the disabled individual worked, a recipient will receive more that the based amount of approximately $460 each month. While the average each person receives each month totals around $900. It is possible to get up approximately $1,235 each month.

Sometimes people have issues securing these disability benefits. Other times, for various reasons, benefits will be discontinued. When either of these situations occurs, it can be devastating for the disabled person.
