The Canadian Pension Plan – Disability (QPP in Quebec) is only available to those that paid into it. When employed, it is typically deducted from your paycheck and remitted by your employer. Other benefits under this plan include the children’s benefit (for dependent children whose parents receive the Canada Protection Plan) and Canada Protection Planpost-retirement disability benefits (provided for those that no longer receive disability because they were getting it for more than 15 months). Canada Protection Plan-disability payments average $971.23/month. As of 2018 the cap was set at $1,362.30/month. To calculate your benefit, use this formula: $496.36 + additional benefit income x .75.
