LTD and Pre-Existing Exclusions

LTD and Pre-Existing Exclusions

In a past blog, we discussed how some LTD claims are denied based on the pre-existing exclusion clause.  We are revisiting the subject because the trend in Canadian society is towards greater movement of the labour force from one job to another, and so it is important to understand the implications of whether such a clause may impact your potential entitlement to disability benefits at some point.
