Are you from Canada by any chance?
I am and I worked for Employment and Insurance for 21 years.
I just applied for medical benefits yesterday.
I'm also on CPP Disability Insurance and Disability Insurance through Sun Life of Canada, then when that runs out, medical retirement takes over.
HI Randy! Yes I am from Canada--Ontario actually too--and funny enough I just applied for EI benefits (medical) on-line yesterday myself.
I also have CPP package and need to take it back to HRDC Friday and take the other part to my doctor, also have appt with ODSP March 7th with worker and my spouse. I am on med. leave right now from work.
Nice chatting to you a fellow Canuck! Take care!!
Wow, that's cool. What part of Ontario r u fr ? I'm fr Hamilton, Ont.
I'm on CPP Disability for an undetermined length of time, but please note, THIS WAS NOT MY DECISION. I fought to stay on the job for 4 years but my medications were slowing me down and I couldn't think without being in a fog.
My employer of 30 years (21 at HRDC,9 at Veterans Affairs) actually put me on DI.
You also mentioned you were applying for ODSP. My son is on that program because he is Bi-Polar/Manic Depression.
How long do you expect to be off?
