One of my clients called today wondering when he was going to get a Review Tribunal hearing. He has been waiting for an appeal for 10 months now - it has been 22 months since he made his application to Canada Pension Plan for disability benefits.
I called the Review Tribunal office again to ask when this gentleman will get a hearing - and I am told that he is waiting to be heard - basically a non answer.
My question is who am I going to have to call to get an answer? Ghost Busters?
I am patient for the most part - I understand the system but honestly these people are dealing with ill health, disability, stress, poverty, financial ruin, inability to fund their medication, the list is endless - and it is not fair to keep leaving these people in limbo.
We need some answers from the Feds.
