CPP disability benefits

Canada Pension Plan (CPP) disability benefits are for people who:

  • have a severe and prolonged disability that prevents them from working regularly or earning more than a limited amount of money
  • are under 65 years old
  • contributed enough to CPP

Your benefits may stop if you:

  • are no longer disabled
  • go back to work or school
  • start getting a CPP retirement pension
  • die

If you don’t initially meet the contribution requirements, you may still get CPP disability benefits if you have enough contributions because of a divorce or separation. This may happen if you split your pension contributions with your former partner.
