*FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…*
► 0:31 – What should you expect during a long-term disability claim?
► 3:08 – Week That Was – In 1989 my husband became disabled, he received disability through his employer’s insurance company. After being cut off multiple times we decided to stop fighting and live off of CPP and my income. Is there anything we can do about this?
► 8:06 – Help@disabilityrights.ca – I’ve been on long-term disability for a year. Recently I noticed that someone is following me with a camera. I’ve been swimming twice a week per my doctor’s advice to release stress and anxiety. Should I stop doing this if the insurance company has hired a private investigator? What should I do if they stop paying me because of this?
► Top 5 Reasons (“Excuses”) Insurers Give for Denying Claims (and what you should do about them!):
• 12:30 – You are not “totally disabled”
• 15:08 – Insufficient medical documents supporting your disability
• 17:40 – There is no formal diagnosis for your disability
• 20:26 – You can do another job
• 23:08 – You don’t qualify because of a pre-existing condition
► 26:17 – Help@disabilityrights.ca – My husband got a call from his employer telling him that they don’t want to continue paying long-term disability. They will be cutting him off in July. We’ve dealt with an insurance company up until now so we’re not sure why his employer is calling about this. Who should we be dealing with about this? Can his employer decide to cut off his insurance payments?
