reconsideration

A “reconsideration” is when you ask Service Canada to review a decision. For example, this could be a decision about Canada Pension Plan (CPP) benefits or payments from the Old Age Security (OAS) program.

Someone at Service Canada reviews the decision and decides whether or not to change it. This is a different person than the one who made the decision you disagree with.
