Manulife will pay benefits beyond 2 years, even in cases involving mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. They look at it on a case by case basis and the key thing in these cases is that the insurance company sees you as receiving appropriate treatment. Many factors are considered like your age, your work experience and how likely it is that you could do other employment. Even if they do end up stopping payments, you can get that decision overturned on appeal.
We publish free guides to disability claims and appeals for each insurance company, and our Manulife guides should be published this month. I already shot all the videos for it before the COVID-19 shutdown.
