Denied CPP Disability claims can be appealed

While most Ontario residents are likely familiar with personal or employment provided disability insurance, some have not heard of Canada Pension Plan Disability Benefits.

However, only those who are not yet 65 years old can qualify if they also meet the other requirements.

Injured construction workers may need help with disability claims

The construction industry in Ontario never seems to take a rest. That's good news for workers, most of whom are able to find employment without difficulty.

A wedding reception in Brampton turned disastrous on the night of July 17 when a 71-year-old woman tragically lost her life in a car crash, according to local sources.

Returning to work after disability leave

Most of us rely upon a job to make ends meet. When someone becomes disabled due to injury or illness, they may be unable to work for a period of time.

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.

Disabled individuals, who are unable to work as a result of the injury, may experience difficulties in paying these expenses.

What you should know about disability benefits from CPP

Disabled individuals reside throughout Canada, including the province of Ontario. When a disability makes it impossible for someone to continue to hold a job, he or she may want to apply for disability benefits from the Canada Pension Plan. As is the case with most governmental plans, to succeed there are multiple guidelines that need to be followed. If those rules are not followed, it can be difficult to secure the benefits.

Is it possible to receive both disability and employment incomes?

Workers in Ontario seek disability benefits from employers for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they are a result of physical injury or illness. Other times however, it is due to mental illness.

Social assistance programs provided needed support

In Ontario, those recovering from an accident have access to support programs while they heal. The Ontario Disability Support Program's Income Support is a social assistance program providing financial assistance for those with long- or short-term disabilities who meet income requirements.
