My son was on short term disability until January 2021 and they are now taking a lot of time to review his ltd claim (documents submitted March 2021). They want him to go for an Independent Medical Examination April 23rd, 2021. Working with his doctors, if he gets approved to return to work before a decision on ltd is made, can he continue his claim for the lost months? How long should it take for a decision anyway!!
Im receiving short term disability fr work after suffering a stroke last July. Still recovering. Benefits lady said im getting shut off payments apr 19 if my dr doesn't sign medical forms. Shes asked him and he keeps telling her he'll do it when he gets to it. She now wants me to call and tell him to sign. Is it my responsibility to bug the doctor? Can they cut me off benefits if the dr. doesn't fill the forms out?0
I have been receiving LTD benefits through SunLife and medical drug coverage based on employer paid premiums for 15 plus years due to auto accidents - now learned medical RX terminated (without notice ie letter, email) as requested by employer even though completed and approved for LTD through SunLife. I know that even with a possible error with coverage (card) or employer switching companies that this small company will not reinstate my benefits. (Yes, I still have to call to confirm). Have I been an employee for all this time (since 2003) - no termination papers - in which case what are my options? Thank you for your help
My daughter in law had worked for the same company for 20+ years then during COVID she was diagnosed with COPD and her company let her go. Shouldn’t she be eligible for long term disability?
I signed a reimbursement agreement with Great West Life. I have been on disability for 5 years. I appealed twice with CPP disability and was just qualified, and my insurance company wants the money reimbursed to them. However, the agreement I signed was to reimburse "Great West Life." But, the company is now called "Canada Life". They want me to pay them the full reimbursement , but first they want me to sign another reimbursement agreement they say is "updated" that says Canada Life now. Am I still liable for this reimbursement if it says a different company name on the agreement? Do I have to sign another new agreement?
