Hello, I am writing an appeal letter to IA insurance for long term disability where they are forcing me back to work before I'm ready. I'm waiting for a second knee replacement however the there are more issues that are preventing from working then just pain in my legs. I have developed other health issues while on disability that prevent me from doing my job the insurance company isn't aware of. If I inform the insurance company of the unrelated health problems is it to my advantage if I can prove it with medical documents? or is this not in my favor?

Hello, this is a follow up to my previous question regarding being pushed to apply for long term disability while currently on maternity leave EI benefits(was previously on short term from Jan.2020 till oct.2020). As suggested I did reach out to Sunlife insurance and asked if there was a limit to apply for long term, their response is below. Now I am more confused and frustrated, I would appreciate your advice. Should you wish to apply for Long Term Disability there is a 52 week waiting period from the day you were first disabled before you can apply. According to our records this day would be January 14, 2021. You have 60 days from then to apply (March 15, 2021), and 90 days (April 14, 2021) to provide the supporting medical documentation for your claim. If you submit after this date, it will have to be reviewed by our management team to waive the late filing policy in your contract. Once the information is received, we will review your claim for eligibility.
I've been on long-term disability for 10 years I'm permanently disabled my employer has a policy which requires my specialty trade to renew a occupational license. Because of my disability this license has expired thus my employer has notified me that I'm going to be terminated because of my expired occupational specialty license. My question is can they do that to me while I'm disabled I have the potential of losing my long-term disability because I'm in a group plan and I could also lose my benefits for medications which I rely on to stay alive do they have the right to do this my understanding is I'm on LTD till the end of 65 what does my eyespecialty occupational license have to do if I'm not able to obtain it due to my disability. My employer has notified me that they may be terminated me because they don't have this specialty license.
