I have been on LTD (approved) since Nov 2019 and have been notified in December 2020 that I will not be approved beyond the change of definition date (Nov 2021). I have a few questions that I am hoping some of you friendly folks can help answer (much appreciated in advance!)
The letter provides a summary of findings and some details as it pertains to their decision. I guess that’s fine and all, but I don’t see an appeal option noted. If I feel that I cannot be employed in any other occupation, is it a matter of just responding to the letter with my doctor’s recommendations on why this is the case? I have also been asked to apply for CPP-D and have been given a date by which to do so. Is this allowed (i.e. to mandate it be done by X date?).
If I feel vocational rehabilitation services would not be appropriate at this time, can one decline, if such has also been noted by the treating physician?
