Episode Notes

  • I’ve been diagnosed with endometriosis and my pain has increased over the years. I was denied by LTD. What are my options?
  • I’m 64 and worked as a janitor for the past 5 years.  I have osteoarthritis in my spine and  I was denied LTD because the insurer said my back pain was not bad enough.  So I then went back to work, but I still couldn’t manage.   What should I do?
  • When someone hires you to start a legal claim, are they going to have to go and see a bunch of doctors for medical assessments as part of the legal process?
  • My friend has been on LTD for 5 to 6 years. She attempted a return to work but couldn’t do it. She’ll be 65 soon and she’s worried she’ll be cut off soon. What are her options?
  • My wife has been on LTD for over 2 years. A few months ago she was notified she’ll be cut off at a later date. Her doctor says she isn’t ready. What should we do?
  • I suffered a mental breakdown due to my work environment.  I receive worker’s compensation benefits and CPP disability benefits. I recently got a letter saying that I don’t qualify for LTD benefits as I can do another job but my doctor is changing my medication again and says I can’t work.
