Long-Term Disability Benefits are intended to provide you with peace of mind and financial security when you unexpectedly find yourself unable to work due to an illness or disability.
Long-Term Disability insurance is designed to provide a monthly income replacement benefit while you are totally disabled from returning to your pre-disability occupation, for the first 24 months following disability. After 24 months, often the terms of coverage change and at that point you must demonstrate you are totally disabled from returning to any occupation for which you are suited by education, training or experience.
There are some policies that provide additional coverage where you are unable to return to your own occupation beyond 24-months.
Most policies have specific terms as to what may constitute a disability. Some common causes include:
Common Causes For Disability Claims
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Herniated or degenerative disc
- Back Pain
- Cartilage sprain
- Sprains/ Strains
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
