Denied Disability Benefits? Here’s What Not to Do

When you’re denied disability benefits, what do you do next? Most Canadians are not well-versed in disability law or the complexities of the denial process. While there are many actions that you should take after your claim is denied, here are some things that you should not do.

What Not to Do When You’re Denied Disability Benefits

1. Ignore the Denial

Ignoring your denial won’t make it go away, and it certainly won’t make your benefits appear out of thin air. It’s crucial to address your denial immediately so that you can see what your options are.

2. Assume the Decision is Final

Just because your claim was denied doesn’t mean it’s the end of the road. Insurance companies routinely deny valid claims that are later approved upon appeal or further review.

3. Give Up

Having the insights of a qualified professional can make a real difference in your outlook on the case. Share Lawyers can guide you through the appeal process.

4. Delay in Appealing

If an appeal is necessary, do not delay. There are typically strict deadlines for filing appeals, and missing those deadlines could forfeit your ability to overturn the denial.

5. Provide Inaccurate Information

When appealing a denial, provide accurate and complete information to support your claim. Inaccurate details could harm your chances of success.
