Hi. I have applied for Ltd after being on an approved std. My drbhas advised I remain off work due to critical low blood levels, migraine causing lack of concentration, sensitivity to light, smell and taste. Is there anything I need to do.... I am worried.
My spouse has been unable to work since 2009 because of mental health issues. She was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia and has been denied any disability benefits apparently because she either didn't have enough hours of work to qualify for CPP disability benefits or had enough household income when she applied for ODSP. Please advise if this is worth challenging.
I have been bitten 2times with ticks carrying lyme and I am very ill my dr 's want me off work to recover but I cant afford my treatments without working we have allready spent thousands and still have a long way to go do I qualify for any kind of assistance and disability benefits?
My insurance company has informed me that my LTD benefits will end after 24 months. Although they recognize that I am unable to return to my current occupation ,they feel that I am capable of performing another(any) occupation. This is despite some of the following recomendation from the IME. "I feel a return to work attempt at this time is likely to fail,and induce a setback in his recovery. I would recommend awaiting the outcome of his upcoming scan and a clinical review and therapy plan by his headache specialist" I plan to appeal their decision I have contacted my employer about a part time return to work plan but with the restrictions and limitations outlined by my doctor on my Fitness Asseement Form I am not confident that my employer will be able to find suitable employment for me and I will be terminated If my appeal is denied and I am terminated because my employer is unable to provide a suitable RTW plan due to my limitations and restrictions, am I eligible for severance? I am 54 years old and have 24 years of service Thank you
