Social Security Tribunal of Canada

Social Security Tribunal members

The Social Security Tribunal (SST) member is the person who decides the outcome of your appeal. 

Members are impartial and independent. They don’t work for Service Canada, the Canada Employment Insurance Commission or Employment and Social Development Canada. 

At the SST, members work at the General Division or the Appeal Division. They all work for the SST, but they make their decisions independently. 

Members come from all walks of life. They are specially trained to hear your appeal.  

Members are appointed by the federal government for terms of up to five years. Learn more about how SST members are chosen.
