Definition of claimable inheritance

I’m recently a widow receiving private LTD in Ontario and CPP disability. Can I receive my spouses private pension and cash out my spouse ms RRSP’s
Without affecting my private LTD and CPP?
Also my CPP disability has decreased due to my survivor benefits with CPP, should I inform my private LTD and will they owe me money?

Sorry for your loss.

Don’t know about the pension, the insurance company might claw it back or they might try to say you’re retired if you take that.
I really have no idea.
I’d ask the insurance company if they have been good so far.

Sounds like they would unless they claw back the survivor benefit.

I’d ask them but before I ask I’d wait for other opinions.
There might be benefit to not poking the bear.
