Disability benefits were designed to provide a financial safety net for people that can no longer perform their work functions due to an injury or disability.
If you become unable to do your job and you’ve paid your premiums you should be entitled to income replacement benefits, short or long term disability as soon as you provide your insurance company with medical evidence of your disability. In an ideal world, your insurance company would pay you your benefits from the time you were and continued to be disabled. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case. At Carter Ford LLP, we recognize that being denied disability benefits, or having your benefits decreased, or cut off can be very stressful and have a significant financial and personal impact. We’re here to help. We will put our extensive experience and knowledge to work for you to obtain a timely resolution of your disability claim.
In certain circumstances, people who are disabled may also be entitled to disability benefits under the Canada Pension Plan.
Many clients have turned to us for help because the process to obtain benefits can be stressful, difficult, or often unsuccessful at first instance.
Often, private insurances or CPP rejects a first application for benefits despite a clear claim that should be paid. Don’t be discouraged by what can be an uphill battle for benefits. That’s where we come in; we’re here to help. We assist our clients at all stages of the disability benefits process. Its our goal to get you the help you need and the benefits you’re entitled to recieve. You’re at the centre of what we do.
