► 6:30 – Help@disabilityrights.ca – My sister had been dealing with a very difficult situation at home for the past year and a half. She had a miscarriage, and this led to a divorce. She’s been seeing a psychologist and he has advised that she has severe depression. She’s on medications but she’s unable to work and her family doctor also agrees. Despite that her insurance company denied her long-term disability claim. Does she need to see a psychiatrist to have her claim approved?

► 18:18 – Help@disabilityrights.ca – My father who is 58 suffered a stroke last year. I’ve been acting as his power of attorney. Because of everything we’ve been dealing with we’ve missed the time for applying for LTD by 10 days and the insurer denied his claim because of that. It just seems very unfair and I’m wondering if we can do anything about this. He was earning 175K a year and his wife who is disabled herself is left with very little income. He did qualify for CPP Disability recently. Is there anything we can do?
► 24:07 – http://www.mydisabilityquestions.com – How often do you deal with CPP Disability? My best friend is on long-term disability and she was told by her insurer that she must apply for CPP Disability, which she did and then was denied. But now the insurance company is cutting her off long-term disability because she was denied CPP Disability, but her doctors are saying that she can’t work yet because of her illness.
