If your CPP Disability application has been denied by Service Canada, you have the option to appeal and ask them to reconsider their decision.

The Reconsideration request is the first level in the 3-level CPP Disability appeal process.
In order to start the appeal process, you must first submit a “Request For Reconsideration” letter to Service Canada, to let them know you will be appealing their decision. This “Request for Reconsideration” letter must be sent within 90 days of the day you received Service Canada denial letter.

To help you get a head start with the first CPP Disability Appeal level, we created the following sample “Request For Reconsideration” for your reference.
The following sample is not an official document or a template you must follow, but rather a suggestion. We recommend that you review the information laid forth and consider this format when writing your own Request for Reconsideration.

Once you have submitted your Request For Reconsideration letter, it is time to gather additional supporting documents from your treating doctors and write the Appeal Letter.
