There are several types of disability benefits in Canada, each with its own criteria for eligibility. To increase the chances of having your disability claim approved, you need to first know which program you qualify for. As far as legal services are concerned, we have the experience to handle a wide range of disability claims, including:
Employment Insurance (EI) Sickness Benefits
This program provides eligible candidates with financial assistance for up to a maximum of 15 weeks if they cannot work for medical reasons. To be eligible, you must be employed by a qualified employer and have earned 600 hours of insurable employment.
Short-Term Disability Benefits
This insurance benefit compensates those suffering non-work-related injuries or illnesses that affect their ability to work for a limited period of time. This program benefits people who need to be off from work between one to three months.
Long-Term Disability Insurance Benefits
This program covers a portion of your income (around 50-70%) when you’ve become injured or are seriously ill and unable to work for a long period of time. These benefits are paid for several years, often until the person reaches the age of 65.
Canada Pension Plan (CPP) Disability
This program provides partial income replacement to eligible candidates. To qualify for CPP disability payments, you must be under the age of 65, have made recent contributions to the Canada Pension Plan, and are unable to do any type of sustainable gainful work due to a mental or physical disability.
Provincial Disability Benefits or Income Support Programs
Each province has its own disability income program as part of the social safety net. For those who don’t qualify for any other disability program, this works as the last resort. To be eligible for benefits, your personal and family income and assets should fall below a certain level.
