Military Disabilities & SISIP

SISIP (Service Income Security Plan) and Long Term Disability Benefits

Military Disabilities affect those who have given a tremendous sacrifice for their country. While fighting for our freedom, they suffered injuries that can be costly and timely to treat. Whether you are still active in the military or are a retired veteran, your injuries, whether physical or mental health related (including PTSD) can make it difficult to adjust to normal routines, social interactions or responsibilities.

SISIP LTD is a group Long Term Disability Benefit plan for Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) personnel. Manulife Financial is the insurance company providing these benefits. It provides Long Term Disability benefits for CAF personnel, whether they are released for medical reasons or leave the service voluntarily.
