In Your Corner TV – Season 1 Episode 9
FEATURED ON THIS EPISODE…
► 1:36 – RECENT SUCCESS STORY – Sivan Tumarkin shares a client’s situation where they were being bullied by an insurance adjuster.
► 4:34 – A caller from The Employment Hour: If a person is eligible for long-term disability, why does the insurance company tell them that it is mandatory that they apply for CPP Disability as well? It seems like you have to jump through too many hoops when you’re ill.
► Top 3 Mistakes Adjusters Sometimes Make in Long-Term Disability Claims, That You Should Know About
• 10:27 – They make decisions on denial or approval of claims without reading ALL of the medical documentation you give them
• 13:10 – They make decisions on the basis of the wrong consultants
• 15:31 – They misread or misunderstand your LTD policy
► 17:30 – firstname.lastname@example.org – If you appeal repeatedly and get denied on all your appeals, does that make your legal case against the insurer weaker than had you not appealed at all? Sivan talks about appealing long-term disability claim denials.
► 22:26 – My Disability Questions – LTD insurers sometimes ask disabled persons to undergo an insurance assessment to determine what other jobs they can do. Does the disabled person have to do one of the jobs identified in that assessment? What rights does the disabled person have?
► 27:18 – email@example.com – My sister worked as an accountant for over 10 years. She had a bad accident a year ago and is still getting long-term disability. She was just let go from her job. Does that mean she will stop getting long-term disability?
