Is London Life Stopping Your Long Term Disability Insurance Benefits After Two Years?

Have you received a letter from London Life stating that you have been receiving disability benefits for two years but those benefits will now be stopped?  You are not alone. 

Most London Life disability insurance policies in Ontario have a change of definition clause in terms of how total disability is defined.  Usually for the first two years disability is defined as an inability to perform the essential tasks of your pre disability employment.  However, after two years of paying disability benefits the London Life policy may define disability as being totally disabled from performing any gainful occupation that you are suited by way of education, training or experience.

Once the two year mark is reached London Life may justify it’s termination of your disability benefits by telling you that you can do some other from of sedentary work such as being a a greeter in a store , a dishwasher or a cashier.

If your long term disability claim is terminated by London Life in this manner you should seek the advice and assistance of a disability claim lawyer as soon as possible.  Your lawyer can help you marshall the medical evidence you may need to establish that you do in fact meet the definition of total disability as set out in the London Life insurance policy.

Often people suffering from chronic pain, fibromyalgia, IBS, degenerative disk disease, depression, stress or anxiety are unable to perform any other job due to their condition.  There are numerous other medical conditions that may prevent you from working and you should not be intimidated by London Life’s insistence that you can do some other job that you have never done before.
