Social Security Tribunal of Canada

OAS/GIS Appeal Division: How to appeal


An appeal is free.

But you may have some of the following costs:

  • making photocopies of documents you want to send to us
  • sending documents to us by Canada Post or a courier service
  • hiring a representative
  • translating documents into either English or French
  • travelling to an in-person hearing

In very rare cases, you may be able to get reimbursed for certain costs. The SST Chairperson decides. The law explains when reimbursement is possible. See section 63(1) of the Department of Employment and Social Development Act.
