Short Term Disability Ontario


What Is Short Term Disability?

As you may expect, short term disability benefit payouts are intended to supplement income for people forced out of work for less prolonged periods - usually less than six months. Unlike long term disability benefits, short term disability benefits are paid out in a specific time frame, and often have a value cap. Short term disability benefits also differ in that the waiting period is typically brief, with individuals often receiving their benefits within days of their injury.

Both short and long term disability are complex, and the benefits you can expect - and your likelihood of receiving them - are dependent on your specific plan. That's why it is vital to consult an experienced disability lawyer to ensure your insurer pays you what you deserve.
