Applying for disability benefits after turning 50

In order to fulfill the demands of our profession, we rely on the abilities of our body and our mind. Suffering an injury or an illness that affects our abilities can have devastating effects on our capacity to earn an income.

Long- and short-term disability insurance acts as a safety net for those who would otherwise suffer significantly after being unable to work.

It is important, therefore, that you understand what you should expect to receive and what responsibilities your employer has toward you.
