I have been on long term disability since March 2017, and I would like to travel( outside of the Canada) to visit my family. I haven’t seen them in 3 years and to make matters worse my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer( a month ago).
I am planning on talking to my doctor about it during my next appointment and ask him if i can travel for 3 months.
I read the benefits booklet there is no mention of travel( in terms of permission or informing them). I am reluctant to ask the insurer since i don’t know how that information will be interpreted.
My case manager usually contacts me every 3 months or so, and for obvious reasons i wont travel without informing her.
But for those of you, who have some experience with this can you please shed some light? How many months were you allowed to travel? Did the insurance continue to pay you while you were away? Did you need your insurer to give you permission?
Do you think that they might cut off my benefits if i travel for that long?
