Canada Life Denied Disability Insurance Claim


On January 1, 2020, The Great-West Life Assurance Company, London Life Insurance Company and The Canada Life Assurance Company merged to become – The Canada Life Assurance Company (“Canada Life”). Great West Life and London Life policies that were in effect remain unchanged in terms of commitments and promises.

Canada Life was founded in 1847 and was Canada’s first domestic life insurance company. Canada Life provides insurance and wealth management products and services in Canada, the United Kingdom, The Isle of Man and Germany, and in Ireland through Irish Life.

Canada Life sells short term and long term disability insurance policies. Some of Canada Life’s disability insurance policies are group policies through employers and others are private.

Many of our clients at Kotak Law have been disheartened and frustrated when Canada Life has denied or terminated their disability insurance claim. Sometimes they are told that there is insufficient medical evidence or that the test for total disability has changed and there is some other occupation that they can do.

At Kotak Law our disability insurance lawyers have been successful in suing Canada Life and securing large lump sum settlements for our clients who suffer from illnesses such as chronic pain, depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress disorder, fibromyalgia, colitis, cancer, crohns, IBS, or even stress alone.
