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.
