CPP disability benefits
How much can I get?
The amount of your disability pension will be set by adding up:
- a base amount of about $500 each month that is the same for everyone getting CPP disability benefits, and
- an extra amount that depends on your CPP pension contributions.
The most you can get all together is about $1,360 each month, but the average is about $955.
If you qualify, your dependent children can also get benefits if they are:
- under 18 years old, or
- full-time students and under 25 years old.
The amount is about $250 a month for each child.
