Canada/Quebec Pension Plan (CPP/QPP) Disability Payments


The WSIB will have regard to or reflect any CPP or QPP disability payments the worker receives for the injury when calculating benefit entitlement.


Determining Payments

To determine whether any CPP or QPP disability payments are in relation to the work-related injury, the WSIB examines any relevant information that may indicate the basis for such payments, in particular, any available clinical reports that guide the WSIB as to the nature of the work-related injury and its possible association with the CPP or QPP payments.
