The period of leave without pay may continue beyond the two-year mark; however, management must be satisfied that there is a reason to extend the leave without pay, i.e. the employee continues to be unable to return to work but there are reasonable prospects of returning to work in the foreseeable future.¡±</li> </ul><p>For more information see <a href="/352/disability-insurance">Disability Insurance</a></p> </div> </div> </div> <section class="field field-name-field-topics field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Topics:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/topics/disability-insurance">Disability insurance</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/duty-accommodate">Duty to accommodate</a></li></ul></section><section class="field field-name-field-publisher field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/publisher/communications-and-political-action">Communications and Political Action</a></li></ul></section> Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:35:23 +0000 pilona 4093 at/352 Assurance-invalidit¨¦ : Ressources pour les repr¨¦sentantes et repr¨¦sentants syndicaux https://www.google.com//352/node/1463 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"><p><a href="http://syndicatafpc.ca/assurance-invalidite-information-pour-les-membres-de-lafpc">Assurance-invalidit¨¦?: Information pour les membres de l¡¯AFPC</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/hr-rh/bp-rasp/benefits-avantages/dip-rai/dis-fra.asp">R¨¦gime d¡¯assurance-invalidit¨¦ ¨C Brochure du participant</a>?: Document produit par le Secr¨¦tariat du Conseil du Tr¨¦sor sur le fonctionnement du r¨¦gime f¨¦d¨¦ral d¡¯assurance- invalidit¨¦.</p> <p><a href="http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/psm-fpfm/benefits-avantages/disability-invalidite/index-fra.asp">R¨¦gime d¡¯assurance-invalidit¨¦</a></p> <p><a href="http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/hr-rh/bp-rasp/benefits-avantages/dip-rai/notices-avis-fra.asp">R¨¦gime d¡¯assurance-invalidit¨¦ - Avis d'information</a>?: Sont affich¨¦es sur cette page les changements r¨¦cents au R¨¦gime d¡¯assurance-invalidit¨¦.</p> <p><a href="http://www.tbs-sct.gc.ca/hr-rh/bp-rasp/benefits-avantages/dip-rai/dip-rai-fra.asp">R¨¦gime d'assurance-invalidit¨¦ ¨C Outils et formulaires</a> Lorsqu¡¯un employ¨¦ ou son m¨¦decin constate qu¡¯un probl¨¨me de sant¨¦ pourrait l¡¯emp¨ºcher de s¡¯acquitter de ses taches normales, l¡¯employ¨¦ doit remplir un formulaire de demande de prestations et le faire parvenir aux personnes ou instances pr¨¦cis¨¦es dans les instructions.

Brother/Sister XX has asked me to intervene on his/her behalf concerning a decision taken by Sun Life Assurance Company of Canada to deny his/her claim for disability insurance benefits.? Brother/Sister XX has recently provided me with related medical and non-medical documentation involving his/her case.? I am writing to you to have this situation resolved in as expeditious a manner as possible.</p> <p>In the last correspondence to Brother/Sister XX concerning his/her claim (Date), Sun Life suggested that his/her case would be reviewed again upon receipt of additional objective medical evidence.? My past experience with the processing of disability insurance claims indicates that the provision of detailed information on the following will lead to the successful adjudication of his/her claim:</p> <p>?</p> <p>1.?? the nature, extent and severity of the disability condition (this would include references to significant symptoms where a diagnosis has yet to be determined);</p> <p>2.?? the restrictions the disabling condition impose on the claimant in terms of his/her daily activities (e.g. ability to do household chores, ability to interact with others in social settings, participation in any sports or hobbies, attempts at rehabilitative employment or any alternate employment, limitations in walking, sitting, standing or tasks requiring extended periods of concentration, etc.);</p> <p>3.?? how the restrictions identified above prevent the claimant from performing each and every duty of his/her regular occupation or employement/a commensurate occupation;</p> <p>4.?? the prognosis for the disabling condition;</p> <p>5. the current treatment being undertaken by the claimant (e.g. frequency of visits for medical attention, current medical program, all prescribed medication along with respective doses, diet, exercise program, therapies, etc.);</p> <p>6.???? any available supplementary documentation, such as consultation notes, assessments, GAF scores and test results which would illuminate on the decline and/or deterioration in Brother/Sister ? ? XX¡¯s? medical condition.</p> <p>For your information, at the moment of becoming disabled, Brother/Sister XX was employed at Department/Agency as a Occupation (Classification) and earning approximately $XX,000 per annum.</p> <p>The existing disability insurance contract includes the following definition of ¡°Totally Disabled¡±:</p> <p>? ? ? ? ? ¡°An Employee is Totally Disabled if he is in a continuous state of incapacity due to Illness which</p> <p>1.???? while it continues during the Elimination Period and the following 24 months, prevents the Employee from performing each and every duty of his regular occupation or Employment.</p> <p>Loss or suspension of a license, due to Illness unrelated to alcoholism or drug addiction, which such Employee requires to carry out his regular occupation, will be considered Total Disability during the Elimination Period and the following 24 months, but only while such license continues to be withheld for the same reason.</p> <p>2.???? while it continues thereafter, prevents the Employee from engaging in any Commensurate Occupation for which he is or becomes reasonably qualified by education, training or experience.</p> <p>In no event, however, will an Employee be considered Totally Disabled if during any period he does not take part or co-operate in a Reasonable And Customary Treatment Program.</p> <p>? ? ? ? ? The term ¡°Commensurate Occupation¡± is further defined as:</p> <p>¡°An occupation for which the current salary or current rate of pay is not less than 66 2/3% of the then current salary for the Employee¡¯s own regular occupation.¡±</p> <p>? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? In an effort to assist Brother/Sister XX in the approval of his/her disability benefits I would suggest that, as the attending physician/specialist in this case, you provide Sun Life with the information as identified above, attesting to Brother/Sister XX¡¯s continuous incapacity to perform the duties of each and every duty of his/her regular occupation or employment/a commensurate occupation beyond Date.</p> <p>? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

This latter Board serves as an independent forum for review of Sun Life decisions involving denial of disability benefits to individual claimants.?</p> <p>?</p> <p>??????????????????? Please note I also understand that, as a health care professional, you have a very busy and hectic schedule and the effort to provide the information required in this case can be a time-consuming and tedious affair.?
