    • Wrong, with Ms, Smith’s government taking over our CPP, Ottawa won’t be able to squander hundreds of millions of dollars on stupid things that won’t benefit us, like the millions spent on an apartment block in Mozambique.

    • No..you don’t need the money..
      Don’t ask..
      Your waiting your breath and nobody wants to hear your whinning !

      • That’s rude. See if you can live in a big city on the retirement income. I know some seniors that eat cat food because they can’t afford rent and food. Obviously you’re just a troll or you’ve never had to suffer from an incredibly low income and worry about paying the basics

    • Try getting a job from home.

    • I know , it’s awful but Trudeau does not care about us that are on a small pension of any kind he just wants to rub us out somebody needs to put Trudeau on the train.

      • Not if you’re disabled buddy … why do you think some have disability income? And tell me. At 75 or 80 do you still want to work when you’ve already put in maybe 40 years?? If you’re healthy enough at 80 to wake up every day then that’s a days work already.

  • Considering the media post about the Governor General spending over 100000 on dry cleaning with our tax dollars feeding this. It’s wrong that politicians still earn their wages even after they have left the field disgusts me to no end. That money can be used in so many ways that to better the struggling people born in Canada. People on disability in the 80s got 2000$ now they get $640 and 400 for rent.. WHO HAS A PLACE TO RENT FOR 400$? NO ONE THAT’S WHO. It’s pushing disabled people into the streets. And who cares about disabled persons? Not many that’s who.. It’s even better that civil workers are allowed to and DO GO to the food bank even though the civil workers make more that 100,000 a year. Canada is so FUD up.

  • Death benefits what a joke the clause is you must have worked 10 years before your death in order to receive the 2500. Just found that out with my brother passing an worse he was disability for his heart so the benefits weren’t allowed to get

  • Time to move out of Canada. This PM Trudeau and his government are not for the people. Will newer be.
    They prefer to pay the rich and bring new emigration to maintain the votes.

    Canada is not what it used to be.
    Take my pension to go somewhere else.
    That’s the only option, and Trudeau is aware and ok with this.
    Shame on Canada.
    Seniors, Veterans , Sick , Disebled, Families, non of this means anything anymore.
    It’s making me SICK.

  • Uea I’m a disabled person who suffered a traumatic brain injury walking down the street next to thugs who wanted cigarettes.now I have brain damage,trying to navigate the system,get as much as I am entitled to because I’m gonna have to survive with it.but nearly 10 years later…I’m still in some home getting 300 bucks a month while c.b.i.slowly milks anymore money I have left!what c.p.p.?I’ve never even been told about my c.p.p. status.

    • Try to contact your local brain injury society for help, as well as see if there is a brain injury rehab program anywhere near you, because they may be able to help you a lot.

  • I have COPD and a rite shoulder compensation benefit, my oxygen machines cost me 100 dollars a month more than normal ,so if I could get some disability help sure would be appreciated, thank you Ken Fischer.

    • Well it depends on a few things are you disabled or not ? Has a doctor said you are ! And need to be on disability? If so again Age if under 65 CPP disability but you get Zero medical help !! If your single and in Ontario check out ODSP even married but they will need your spouses income along with yours . And they will give medical help .
      Good luck there not much help out there

    • Do you live in Ontario ? If so why have you not contact ODSP . They pay well rent can’t be all that bad if your on ODSP ! as I heard some get 2000 a mth which covers heat hydro rent plus what ever else. Well warming centres open in 6 weeks so get into one that should help keep you off street for the nights . I know we have a big issue and it need to be addressed badly but we don’t have advocate to speak on are behalf! This is where the issue is with the government and us the people something needs to change . And I’m not sure what or who can do it for us . As your right 1000 a mth is nothing I know I get 900 so I know and I feel your pain I have back issue and chronic nerve pain in both legs . Oh joy the cold weather is coming . It kills me .

  • Hello I’m on Cpp disability I only get 900 a mth is there anything else I can get to help top me up or is there any other pension that I can get to add onto this 60 yrs old . And dam it’s hard to get by on what I’m getting . What I get and what my meds cost eats up a quarter of my money a month then car insurance gas plus house hold cost and food . I need help .

  • A lot of people are suffering in Canada and the government doesn’t care. We need to change things up. Our gov. isn’t living up to its contract with the people and has to go. We the people have to find the will to organize and found a new way to govern ourselves so all people can be looked after, not just the rich and powerful.
