Canada Pension Plan Disability Benefit (CPPD)


CPPD is the federal disability program in Canada.

CPPD is a monthly taxable payment which can be provided to applicants who are no longer able to continue working due to a disability. CPPD is provided by the federal government of Canada and contributions are made by workers in Canada excluding Quebec. To qualify for the CPPD benefit, you must have a severe and prolonged disability and meet the contribution requirements.

Applying can be complex and the system has a lot of rules. Please see our related videos and answers to commonly asked questions regarding CPPD. Also take a look at our resources section that provides forms for CPPD and a fact sheet that overviews the CPPD application process.
