What They Covered

  • Why has my disability insurer asked me to undergo a transferable skills analysis?
  • What information does an insurer need at the start of an insurance claim?
  • My wife’s eligible for an early pension but her insurance company is telling her that they get to take a discount on what they are paying her. Is this true?
  • What are the rules about traveling if you’re getting long-term disability benefits?
  • My wife was on LTD and undergoing cancer treatments. Her doctor said she could start a gradual return to work and so her insurance cut her off. The cancer later returned. Should we appeal?
  • Can someone continue getting their disability benefits if they’re not getting treatment for the condition that is affecting their ability to work?
  • Our disability lawyer told us that we have to apply for a litigation loan to cover disbursements. Is this normal?
  • What is the Disability Tax Credit?  Can you get this while you are on LTD or CPP Disability?
  • What do you do if you are self-employed and diagnosed with a hereditary disability and you are unable to work., who do you approach first?
  • Does getting into an accident affect my disability claim?
  • If someone’s appeal for benefits is actually successful, does this mean their benefits are guaranteed to be paid until they retire?
