Post Applying for the Canadian Disability Tax Credit
Hello everyone

I am not sure how many here are from Canada but we have the option of applying for a tax credit for the working disabled from Canada revenue Agency, anyhow back in December 2011 I applied for the first time and did everything I was supposed to in regards to filing the forms and so on, I also forgot to mention that I am getting help with Canadian Disability Corporation to get this, well after many months of waiting for a reply they DENIED me saying that I was not disabled enough because my GP did not write of check off the approriate information that they look for to accept you, I was really pissed off as I could not figure out how much more info they needed, I did appeal it as soon as I was denied which was back in April, they are now telling me that the wait time is the same amount as if Iwas a new claimant because once denied your file is closed Grrrrr, now I have been waiting since April and will not heat back until at least the end of August if not longer. I am not too optimisitc on being accepted as it seems they will find any reasons not to accept you and pay you the money that is rightfully yours.
Is there anyone else out there that has applied and been accepted, I would like to know what you did right.
Thank you :shrug

Hi Lynn,

I am from Ontario...and I was denied my first CPP application on July 3rd. I am in the process of getting info together to appeal it. My doctor had never filled one of the reports out b4 as she just graduated last July.

I wish you much success. This entire process is very frustrating!

Take care,
Marylou

:wave lynn, I don't know why more have not replied to you especially since we have so many members from canada.

Unfortunately I am not from there so I can't help you however it seems like regardless of where u come most places give you an extremly hard time getting help.

It's no different here in the USA, I have many medical issues but still maneaged to live as full a life as I could until I suffered a work related injury. When I applied for what is called social security or dissability I was denied more times than I care to tell u. I honestly think that they want us to get so tired, frustrated, stressed out & disolutioned that we just give up.

The way I c it, when we let them do that to us in a way we r not advocating 4 ourselves. At 1 time I was so fed up I wanted to give up, my hubby asked me, what r u gaining now by not fighting it, NOTHING. So the worse thing that could happen was that they denied me again but they weren't taking anything from me that I didn't already have.

So please hang in there till u run out of options & don't give them the satisfation, I know it's hard & stressful, but like my hubby told me, u r not getting anything now so by continueing to fight 4 it u won't be losing anything but time & that is something that we have alot of once this hits us

GOOD LUCK

I think people are not replying because not to many people know abouth this credit, I only found out through a friend of mine who applied for it for her Ataxia.
It is a very tricky thing cause if your doctor does not fill out the forms accurately you will be denied because as usual Fibromyalgia is not a permanent disability as far as some doctors are concerned. I do have other underlying medical isues that all relate to the fibro so I made sure to put that on the form.
I also was anxious to hear back from more people but it is what it is.

Hi Lynn,
I am from Saskatchewan, and know nothing about disability. I am still able to work, well part time at least. However, at some point in time I am guessing that I won't be able to, well at least nothing physical. Even now when I work for a few hours, I find it hard to be able to get anything done at home, as I have no strength left over. However, considering I am 54 years old, not sure whether disability will come into play or not.
However, I am interested in how this works. So I will be interested in following this thread.
I sure hope that this works out for you. All i know about disability is that you have to really fight for it. Good Luck.

I am not sure if this is the CPP Disability or the one through income tax disability credit? I have applied 3 years ago for the CPP one and had my Dr do the paperwork for income tax but that one has been lost in the mail. I was denied for CPP Disability and have appealed, my tribunal was in June and they say they might have an answer in another 4-5weeks. My dr charges for paperwork and I have not been able to afford to have him redo the income tax one but hopefully soon. Obviously I have been unable to work for some time I don't know if I can help because I have so far been unsuccessful. I will say they are having an issue with the timing of my filing as I waited for a year trying to get a diagnosis and ended up filing with the 5 other diagnosis at the time, fibro took a year and a half to diagnose and that was waiting time to see a specialist.
