Patience - that state of enduring under difficult circumstances, perservering in the face of delays without acting in negative ways, and if I recall apparently a virtue.
I know I am struggling to keep patient and I know a lot of you are out there trying to be patient as well.
Patient with delays with this new Social Security Tribunal that has been foisted on all of us to now endure.
Patient with the clients and people who call most days to enquire about why it is taking so long.
Patience trying to understand how this government can cause these people applying for or appealing the denial of their CPP Disability benefits more grief and ultimately more sickness and depression because they are starving them in to choosing between medication and required medical treatments, and a house payment or food for their children.
Patience with the consistently CPP disability high denial rate.
Patience with the people who vent on me when they are denied.
Patience - I am not good at being patient.
I know that the new appeals that have been sent to the Social Security Tribunal after April 1, 2013 have not yet been acknowledged - but I have confirmed that this will be done soon.
I have had an opportunity to attend a webinar which described the CPP Social Security Tribunal process to me.
Again please get help from someone to manage this appeal system - if you do not I worry that you will be in a very negative position - as from my review the average Joe is not going to be able to navigate this system - and if you want information from the Information Line - good luck. I hope that the Feds who read this blog get a handle on the Information Line - it is not working.
I honestly do not think that appeals will be heard until later this year - or even in to the new year - that is just my gut instinct - not an official confirmation. So if you are in this CPP Social Security Tribunal appeal processes give me a call.
I am just in the process of getting the website updated to reflect these changes.
Each day I speak "please give me the strength to be patient today" Thank you to all the people who email me sending appreciation for my work. It keeps me going.
