FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…
► 1:22 – RECENT SUCCESS STORY – A former employee in the insurance industry refers to some insurance companies as “profit centres.”
► 4:05 – A caller from The Employment Hour: My wife has been on long-term disability for over a year following a complicated back surgery. The insurance company will cut off long-term disability, and her employer will let her go, if she doesn’t return to work. What should she do?
► How to Make a Stronger Long-Term Disability Claim
• 9:00 – Get referrals to specialists

► 14:56 – email@example.com – Is surveillance by an insurance company legal? What should disabled individuals know about it, and what should they do if they are cut off long-term disability because of surveillance?
► 20:09 – My Disability Questions – My mother underwent chemo for a rare form of skin cancer. The insurance company says that her two years are coming up and that it’s time for her to try to go back to work. She can’t. She’s still very sick and her job as an executive is quite demanding. Her doctors told the insurer that she’s not ready yet, but they already set the date for her to stop getting payments. How can we stop them from cutting her off?
► 23:27 – My Disability Questions – I’m a 46-year-old database analyst, just diagnosed with Lupus. I had breast cancer in 2014 that led to a double mastectomy, and then I developed depression and other conditions including arthritis. I have 3 doctors that all say I can’t work because of my conditions, but the insurance company says that I don’t fit their definition of “totally disabled”. What does that even mean? I feel very lost right now.
