Can I apply for long term disability if I’m on maternity leave?
Long term disability policies have eligibility requirements. Sometimes they have an actively at work provision in the policy which means you need to be actively at work when you become disabled. There are policies that allow for an application for disability while on a leave of absence such as maternity leave. You will need to get a copy of your policy and consult a lawyer.
