Do you support clients who applied for Canadian Pension Plan–Disability (CPP-D) benefits and were denied? Or who had their request for reconsideration declined? This webinar will help community workers understand the CPP-D reconsideration and appeal processes. Our presenters will walk you through the steps to help you support clients using CLEO's Guided Pathway tool.
