Disability Benefits

Disability Pension

Disability pensions provide monthly tax-free payments to eligible:

Survivors / Surviving dependents can also qualify for benefits; please see the "Benefits for Survivors" section.

The amount of a Disability Pension depends on:

  • the degree to which that disability is related to your service (entitlement); and
  • the extent of the disability (assessment).

Your rank or years of military service have no impact on the amount you may receive.

Additional pension amounts may also be awarded for qualified dependents (e.g. spouse, common-law partner and/or children).

You may also qualify for additional allowances if you receive a Disability Pension.

* Note: Typically, CF members and Veterans are covered under the Canadian Forces Members and Veterans Re-establishment and Compensation Act and are entitled to a Disability Award. However, anyone who submitted an application prior to April 1, 2006 may still qualify for a Disability Pension for any condition(s) related to that application.
