Long Term Disability Benefits Lawyer Etobicoke, Toronto
In certain situations, injured or sick employees have access to a Long Term Disability policy, either through their employer or one they have purchased on their own.
Typically, a person will have to wait to apply for Long Term Disability Benefits through an “elimination period”, which can be anywhere from 15 weeks to 26 weeks. During this time, you might have access to short term disability benefits or Employment Insurance benefits.
After the “elimination period” ends, an employee will have to meet a test of disability. This test is usually proving that you can no longer do your job for the first two years of your disability. This test later changes to a more stringent test of proving that you can no longer do any job after an accident or illness.
