Shediac Disability Lawyer


In order to apply for disability benefits, eligible insurance policyholders may be required to submit supplementary medical evidence along with their application. This evidence should prove that the applicant has received a diagnosis for a disabling medical condition that prevents them from completing the tasks associated with their job. These conditions could be related to both the claimant’s physical and mental health. Types of evidence a claimant may be required to submit include:

  • Medical records
  • Results of medical examinations
  • Statements from attending physicians
  • A detailed description of job duties
  • A statement from plan sponsor (i.e. employer)
  • Other documentation

Unfortunately, even if an applicant’s insurance plan offers an appropriate level of coverage, after submitting thorough medical evidence to their insurance provider proving that the symptoms of their condition makes it impossible for them to perform the duties of their job, the insurance company may decide to deny the policyholder’s claim for disability benefits. In these all too common situations, insurance companies unfairly withhold much-needed payments from eligible policyholders who often rely on the benefits they are owed to continue supporting themselves and their families in light of their diagnosis.

For the people who have sustained severe physical injuries, developed a chronic illness, or have been overwhelmed by mental health concerns, receiving disability benefits can make all the difference between financial stability and devastation. Many people receive insurance coverage for disability benefits through their employer’s group plan; others may have an appropriate level of insurance coverage through a privately held policy that they pay for monthly. Regardless of who sponsors their insurance plan, though, if the plan offers disability benefits and the policyholder meets their plan’s eligibility criteria, they should be able to access their benefits payments when they need them.

Disability benefits typically replace between 60-70% of a recipient’s regular wages. For those who cannot continue working because of their medical diagnosis, disability benefits payments might be the only source of income available to them. By denying their claims, insurance companies use unfair tactics to justify withholding the payments to which eligible policyholders should be entitled.
