Each plan or program has its own definition of disability. You must therefore check the definition of disability of each organization that may pay you compensation.
Whether you are a victim of a car accident or work accident, if the organizations concerned do not recognize a total disability, you may be entitled to the Quebec disability plan.
To note that:
- Being recognized as disabled by another organization, such as an insurance company, does not automatically entitle you to the QPP disability pension. The criteria may be different.
- In the medical assessment of the ability to work, Québec pension considers only the state of health.
- If you are 60 to 64 years of age, you may be eligible for a disability pension if you have had to leave your usual job because of your condition and cannot continue to work regularly.
- If you have already contributed to the Canada Pension Plan or a pension plan of a country with which the federal or Quebec government has entered into a social security agreement, these years may be added to your QPP contribution and to make you eligible for the disability pension.
