On This Episode

  • Week That Was – Class action lawsuit launched against Arch Insurance on behalf of students who were not reimbursed for canceled school trips
  • Is this lawsuit similar to that of the class-action against TD Insurance?
  • My claim was settled 4 years ago and I qualified for CPPD but was cut off from LTD despite still being disabled. I reached out to a law firm and settled my claim for a fraction of what I am actually owed. Can I undo this?
  • My wife was on LTD and is a teacher when the schools were shut down because of COVID-19. Her mental health became worse but her insurance adjuster told her that unless she tries to return to work will be cut off. What should she do?
  • What does your doctor need to write in a letter to help you get approved for long term disability:

    • How long you’ve been the claimant’s doctor
    • A diagnosis if possible
    • Treatment recommendation and whether or not the claimant has been following them
    • What functional limitations, if any, does the claimant have?
    • The claimant’s prognosis
  • I had an accident a few years ago and since then my back has been in very bad shape. I have difficulty sitting or standing and I was on LTD but just recently I was cut off because my insurer said that I am not “totally disabled.” What are my options?
  • My adjuster says that I’m only getting LTD for 2 years because I can do other type of work but I have PTSD and I go to a therapist regularly and take medications.  I’m afraid that I won’t have any income and I don’t know what to do.
  • I work in a factory and have been diagnosed with lupus. Lately, my lower back and knees are aching and my job pushes workers to keep going. I asked my doctor for a letter and she told me that everyone has problems. What should I do?
