CPP disability benefits
What is the Canada Pension Plan?
The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) is a benefits plan for employees and people who are self-employed.
Workers who pay into the plan, or their former spouses or common-law partners, might get a retirement pension when they are old enough. Or they might get disability benefits if they can no longer work because of a disability.
There are also benefits for:
- children of people who are receiving CPP disability benefits
- children and spouses or common-law partners of CPP contributors who have died
