Disability requesting information


#1

Hello, I was denied my cpp disability application last week. I plan on asking for reconsideration. I informed my Insurance company and they are requesting a copy of the letter of denial from c.p.p. Am I required to give them this?


#2

Yes, you should send them a copy of the denial letter.


#3

Yes, my policy says I’ll give them copies of Service Canada approvals or denials.

As others have indicated you should give them a copy of this letter. You may or may not have a legal obligation to do so, but you should always go out of your way to be as helpful as possible with the insurance company. You have an obligation to deal with them in good faith and it will be important if they every decided to wrongfully stop your payments. If a judge ever has to review your case they will look favourably on you if they see you had a history of being helpful and cooperative with the insurance company.
