Advocacy Support from the MS Society

Sometimes you may need extra support or referrals to help deal with a specific issue related to your MS.


CPP-D Application Assistance Service

The CPP-D application Assistance Service (CAS) aims to help individuals with MS who are applying for the Canada Pension Plan disability benefit (CPP-D) successfully receive their benefits. In too many cases, individuals are denied benefits due to providing insufficient information and examples clearly demonstrating how their MS symptoms impede their ability to work.

We help you determine your eligibility for the benefit and, if eligible, pair you up with trained volunteers (over the phone) who will get to know more about you and your MS. The volunteers will assist you by developing a comprehensive description of how your MS symptoms affect your ability to work, which you can submit with your CPP-D application.

If you are interested in receiving support from CAS, please contact our MS Navigators at 1-844-859-6789 or msnavigators@mssociety.ca to get started.
