How do I prove that I have a disability?

The application kit asks for a lot of detailed information about how your disability affects you. You will need to get your doctor to fill out the medical form in the kit. CPP will pay your doctor's fee for this, up to a certain amount.

Before you send in your application, get as much medical information as you can to prove your disability is both severe and prolonged.

A medical professional hired by the government will look at the medical information you send in. This person will tell CPP whether or not they think you have a disability that could qualify you for benefits.

They will just read your file, not actually examine you. So it is very important to clearly explain in your application exactly how your disability prevents you from working.

A community legal clinic or lawyer may be able to help you with this.
