Social Security Tribunal can't manage caseload -As many as 6,000 still haven’t been heard, the documents show — and there are generally about 3,000 new appeals every year. Among the documents is a memorandum from the head of the tribunal, Mureille Brazeau, alerting Kenney that the tribunal is struggling to manage the caseload.

Applicaiton forms for CPP disability.

How applications for CPP disability benefits are assessed?

To be eligible for CPP disability benefits, you must have a severe and prolonged medical condition. What is important is how the medical condition and its treatment affect your ability to work at any job on a regular basis. Your condition must be expected to last at least one year or be likely to result in death.

CPP disability benefits are not approved on the basis of a medical diagnosis alone.  Medical adjudicators consider several factors together, including:
* the nature and severity of your medical condition
* the impact of the medical condition and treatment on your capacity to work
* the prognosis
* personal characteristics such as age, education and work history
* your work performance, productivity and how much you are earning.
* the medical adjudicators do not consider the availability of suitable employment in your region when they determine on your eligibility.
