Widows allowance deducted

Hi. I will be receiving a widows allowance will that be deducted from my LTD payments?

Hi, if you are talking about the CPP Survivor Benefit, then it is deducted from LTD benefits in some situations. It will all depend on how the CPP deduction is decribed in your insurance policy. Sometimes it is broadly worded to include any type of payment you get from CPP, including disability, retirement or survivor benefits.
