► 1:20 – Week That Was – A 36 woman who survived cancer was in a bad car accident. She was on LTD and at 2 years she received and offer from her insurer to settle her LTD claim. She received an offer for 6-7 years worth of LTD. Was this offer correct?
► 5:56 – Help@disabilityrights.ca – My son had a breakdown at work last year because of bullying by his superiors. He has always been pre-disposed to depression and anxiety, but his work situation especially last year really triggered something much broader. His psychiatrist sees him as an outpatient at the local hospital and my son now lives with me. Despite this the insurance company insists that it’s a work-related issue only and they’ve denied him long term disability. Are they right?
