APPEAL DENIAL OF PERSONS WITH DISABILITY

Appealing Denial of the Persons with Disabilities ( PWD) Benefit: The Appeal Tribunal

If your application for Persons with Disabilities (PWD) status was turned down by the Ministry of Social Development and Social Innovation (MSDSI) and your Request for Reconsideration has been denied you appeal the Ministry’s decision You can ask for an Appeal Tribunal to hear your case This Help Sheet is designed to help you understand the appeal process and how to ask for an Appeal Tribunal. Please note that although this Help Sheet provides an overview of the appeal process and gives suggestions on how you may increase your chance of success it does not take the place of an advocate’s assistance Indeed as the success rate for people appealing Ministry decisions  has gone down significantly in recent years we urge you to seek the advice of advocate at the beginning of the process To speak to an advocate contact the Advocacy Access program (604-872-1278 or toll-free1-800-663-1278) or go the Province website: (www.povnet.org) and click on Find an Advocate to see if there is an advocate in your area If you are looking for assistance to apply for Request for Reconsideration for PWD. See Help Sheet 5A. if you are looking for assistance to apply for PWD, see Help Sheet 2
