Increasing an Applicant’s Best Chance of CPP Disability Application Approval

This presentation will focus on helping to reduce the risk of unnecessary delay, hardship, and stress by providing helpful information when completing your CPP Disability application. We will provide members with hands-on information on how to strengthen a CPPD application to increase the chance of approval at the initial submission stage. Statistically speaking, if your application for CPPD is denied, this denial can take up to two years if the denial reaches the final stage of an appeal. Given the hardship that such a delay may cause, it is paramount to ensure that you submit a robust application that reduces the risk of denial. 

Completing the application is no easy task. Foisy & Associates has recognized the vague structure of the application, which can put you at an inherent disadvantage. Due to the arbitrary types of questions listed in the application and the corresponding rating scale, applicants may tend to underestimate the impact of their health condition(s) and resulting functional limitations. Without proper guidance to ensure a comprehensive and detailed application is submitted, a CPPD adjudicator is likely to deny the application at the submission stage despite the severity of your health condition.
