  1. I am 64 years old and on CPP disability and receive benefits from my ex husband’s work place. The benefits only cover $1500.00 of dental work per year. I know that with the problems that I have with my teeth will cost more than what the benefits will pay. I would not be surprised, if in the next couple of years that I will need to have my teeth extracted and have to have dentures. Will I qualify, if my plan doesn’t cover the whole amount of work that I will need on my teeth?
