Understanding Compensation Available Through Long-Term Disability
The benefits available through long-term disability insurance may vary depending on the specific details of the plan you chose. Most disability insurance policies replace a portion of your regular income, sometimes between 60 and 85%. These benefits often have a maximum benefit cap that applies to your payments regardless of the percentage of your income that it covers.
Most plans also have some type of time limit, which for many plans is two years for your current job. If you are unable to work at your previous job, you may be eligible for disability payments for up to two years. After this time, you may only continue receiving benefits if your medical condition prevents you from working any job but this benefit may be available up to the age of 65.

There Are Deadlines You Must Meet When Appealing a Stirling Disability Denial
How long you have to appeal a denial or commence a lawsuit depends on the stipulations in your policy. Generally, you have two years from the date they issue your denial to pursue a lawsuit although we recommend filing it in advance of the one year mark.
We recommend acting quickly, even if the insurer gives you two years to take action. Reach out to us today to let us take a look at your long-term disability policy and determine your rights.

If you paid your premiums for long-term disability insurance, you expect the insurer to grant you the compensation you are entitled to when an injury or illness prevents you from working. Unfortunately, this may not always happen. As the Journal of Law and Social Policy reports, too many Canadians are not seeing the full benefits of their disability coverage.
If your disability insurer denied you compensation, you may be able to appeal their decision. At Preszler Injury Lawyers, one of our disability lawyers serving Stirling may be able to help you build your case increasing your chances of success.
