I have been on LTD since 2009, and on CPPD since 2016 (due to having applied late).
I recently was able to settle with my LTD insurer, and have been planning to relocate permanently to Europe, (I understand that I can still receive my CPPD even when in Europe).
Curiously enough, even tough I have settled with my insurer 2 months ago, my company has made no move to terminate me yet.
At this point, I need to figure out how much termination pay and severance pay I may be entitled to get from my employer, and whether I can obtain it.
I should mention that my employer has no knowledge that I want to relocate. (I am not 100% sure if they are even aware that I am on CPP really, even though, years back, I did email to my HR rep that I am on CPPD.)
So what should I do? Am I entitled to severance and/ or termination pay? (I am from Ontario, and my employment has taken place in Ontario)
Do I get severance for every year I worked at my company, or do I get it for every year I have been employed? (I got hired by my company in 2004, worked for them for 5/6 years, and then became disabled in 2009)
The thing is, my company, is big enough, that it so happens that it has offices even in the same country, and city, where I plan to relocate. Would it even make sense to tell my company that I am planning to relocate to a city where they have offices in, so that, instead of getting severance, I actually keep my dental and medical benefits? Is this even an option? (The country I am moving to is in the EU, if that helps.)
