It’s a scary situation to think about: what if an injury or disability (like a car accident) puts you out of work? How do you ensure that you always receive the income you need?

Disability insurance may be available to employees who contribute to a benefits plan or who are lucky enough to have disability benefits through their employer, but it’s not always that simple.

For help with receiving the insurance you are entitled to, Mississauga Law Firm TWF law is ready to help.

The company, which serves all of Ontario, including Peel, helps customers access crucial benefits related to short-term and long-term disability – which is particularly useful if a provider tries to deny you these benefits (for example, by deciding that your disability is not severe enough to prevent you from working).

“If you don’t know what to do with your claim following a refusal, consult a disability lawyer. TSF Law’s disability lawyers offer free strategy sessions and process your case without taking fees until it is settled,” explains the law firm.

The outline of the TSF law 5 main steps What to do if you have been denied short-term or long-term disability benefits:

1. Seek help and support from your family doctor. They will provide you with the advice and treatment you need to feel better and get back to work as soon as possible.

2. Try applying for other private or government benefit programs you may be eligible for, such as the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP), Canada Pension Plan Disability (CPPD) or the Income replacement benefit (IRB) if your disability was caused by a car accident.

3. Do not appeal your denied disability claim. These insurance calls are usually unsuccessful and can end up being a source of frustration.
