Anxiety And Depression Leading To Disability Claims

Depression and anxiety are two of the most common illnesses to force Canadians from the workforce. Both can be prompted by factors unrelated to one's employment, but are also frequently brought on by work-related stress - such as dealing with long and difficult work, or difficult colleagues. 
Disability insurance claims based on depression and anxiety are both more likely to be denied, and more likely to be prematurely terminated, than those based on physical injuries. However, they are entirely legitimate reasons to make a claim. Disability insurance providers may use the difficulty of showing or proving one's mental state to their advantage, forcing you to use litigation to receive the disability settlement that you deserve.
