Why its so hard to win CPP disability
Winning CPP disability benefits is not easy. Service Canada approves some claims. But, most people get denied. For example, a 2016 Auditor General’s report looked at CPP disability. It found that Service Canada denied 60% of all applications. Further, it found 66% of those denied gave up.
So, why is CPP disability so hard to win? Even if your legitimately disabled? There is no easy answer. You must prepare your claim properly. You have to be convincing to the decision-maker. Otherwise, they will deny your claim.
For example, common reasons for denial include:
- lack of medical evidence
- your situation has “red flags”
- they think you can do other work
- you didn’t prove your disability started during your MQP
- they don’t believe you

FAQs about CPP disability lawyers
CPP disability lawyers help people with CPP disability. There is no certification to be a CPP disability lawyer. A lawyer get experience from helping people with claims.
Most CPP disability lawyers only get paid if they win. This is called a contingency fee arrangement. Usually, the lawyer’s fee is a percentage of your retroactive CPP disability payment. The fee percentages range from 20% to 33.3%. You should expect the fees to be $6,000 or more if your case goes to appeals. It gets higher if you go to the tribunal. Some lawyers want to be paid win or lose. They usually charge by the hour or by a fixed fee paid in advance.
We represent most people using contingency fees. This means you only pay us if we win. Our fee percentage is 33.3%. But, we adjust it based on our Fair Legal Fee Guarantee. This means we reduce the fee percentage when appropriate. We follow the Rules of Professional Conduct to charge a fair fee.
There is no right answer. Rather, it depends on the person and situation. Some people can’t represent themselves effectively. Generally speaking, the earlier you hire a lawyer, the better value they can give you. Lawyers can help you avoid mistakes. They help you avoid delays. The sooner your case is approved, the less the fee.
Lawyers are not your only option. You can get help from free legal clinics. Or, sometimes legal aid. You can also be represented by non-lawyer advocates. They usually change the same fee as lawyers. However, they don’t follow Rules of Professional Conduct.
