Chronically Addicted But Denied the Disability Pension? A New Guide May Help

n April 2013, the process to appeal the denial of Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPP-D) changed when a new system, the Social Security Tribunal (SST), replaced the Review Tribunal.

The BC Coalition for Persons with Disabilities has prepared a new guide, The Social Security Tribunal, to help people who are representing themselves to the SST. Advocates may also find the new guide useful in helping their clients. The guide is available here: The BCCPD sincerely thanks the Law Foundation of Ontario for funding this guide.

For the time being, the guide will be available on-line only. The SST is very new and BCCPD will make changes to the guide as necessary.
