How long do I have to wait to collect LTD benefits? by Patricia Santucci

There is always a waiting period between when you stop working and when you begin to receive LTD benefits. The time period varies depending on the policy. It is usually necessary for you to be off work for several months before you will be entitled to receive LTD benefits. The waiting period is typically 90 to 180 days. If you are off work due to a disability, consult Santucci Personal Injury Law and we will examine your policy and advise you when your entitlement begins. Our firm has successfully sued numerous Canadian disability insurers and helped disabled individuals like you to fight for their rights. (30)
