The Pension Appeals Board is no longer receiving new applications or holding hearings. If you have any inquiries about a case, please contact the new Social Security Tribunal. We are transferring all incomplete cases to the new tribunal. Their email address is: email@example.com

The Pension Appeals Board is the final opportunity for appeal under the Canada Pension Plan.
Members of the Pension Appeals Board are federal or provincial superior court judges or former judges and are appointed by the Governor in Council. Members include a Chairman, Vice-Chairman and up to ten permanent Members and additional temporary Members.
Pension Appeals Board hearings are not automatic and claimants or the Minister must request "leave to appeal (PDF 86KB)".
Appeals heard by the Board are by way of a new hearing and take place in every province of Canada. Written reasons for a decision are given on every appeal.
Decisions of the Pension Appeals Board, except as provided in Sections 18 and 28 of the Federal Court Act, are final and binding for all purposes of the Canada Pension Plan.
