What’s a Long-term Disability?
Long-term disability is designed to provide individuals with financial support if they’re suffering from an illness or disability that prevents them from working. Most workers in Alberta are insured for long-term disability benefits through their employers. LTD benefits typically cover 70 percent of your pre-disability salary. You must be off work for 17 weeks or more to apply for LTD benefits.
Why Insurance Companies Deny Long-term Disability Claims
An insurance company may deny your long-term disability claim or terminate your long-term disability benefits for a variety of reasons, one of the most prevalent being that your injury or medical condition doesn’t fall under the insurance policy’s definition of a disability. Other reasons include:
- You didn’t fill out the application correctly
- You filed the application late
- You haven’t been out of work long enough
- Your application was missing information or didn’t provide sufficient evidence
- You had a pre-existing medical condition
