The Canada Pension Plan Act was established to protect the quality of life of retirees, survivors of deceased spouses, people coping with disabilities and their children. Every year, many Greater Hamilton and South Western Ontario Area residents are denied access to CPP benefits without proper cause. Citizens who object to the denial need to move quickly as there are strict time lines.
If your Canada Pension application has been unfairly denied, you may feel at a loss as to how to proceed. At Mackesy Smye, we specialize in helping Ontario Canada Pension Plan applicants who have been denied access to their rightful benefits.
The CPP appeal process is even more complex than the initial Canada Pension application. It includes three distinct approaches – 1) a Request for Reconsideration, 2) an Appeal to a Review Tribunal, or 3) an Appeal to the Pension Appeals Board – each with their own particularities and sensitive time requirements. These procedures can be very difficult to navigate without adequate legal counsel. Our law firm can help by providing the advice and the representation necessary to ensure that your information is presented in such a way that you receive the maximum CPP benefit.
Mackesy Smye is proud to offer you the services of some of lawyers who have had great success with Canada Pension Plan Appeals. If you are eligible for funds under the CPP, we will make certain that you receive the maximum amount you are eligible for.
