The number of Canadians with disability coverage through their workplace has been on the decline for the past six to seven years. Unfortunately, out of the Canadian workers who do not receive disability coverage through work, the vast majority of them do not or have not obtained disability coverage on their own by working with insurance providers independent from their workplace.
If you do not currently have disability insurance you must ask yourself: would I be able to recover financially if I was disabled in an accident and could not work for a minimum of three months? If you, like the majority of Canadians, would be in financial hardship in the case of an accident or incident leaving you disabled and unable to work, it’s vital that you obtain disability coverage for yourself as soon as possible.
Barriers To Obtaining Disability Coverage
The first question many Canadian workers ask is why? Why has work disability coverage become less common and less obtainable through the workplace? Why are so many Canadians without disability coverage in the first place? The answer to these questions is not always simple, however, there are a few common reasons why many Canadians are left without disability coverage.
Primarily, their workplace simply does not offer disability coverage. Secondarily, contract or part-time workers are often unqualified to receive disability coverage. Thirdly, self-employed or freelance Canadian workers do not automatically receive disability coverage. Finally, many Canadians who do not receive disability coverage through the workplace feel as though they cannot afford to obtain it themselves.
Take Steps To Obtain Protection
If you are one of the millions of Canadians who do not have disability coverage through their workplace or otherwise, it’s imperative that you take the time to go through your workplace coverage and determine what coverage you do have, then seek out alternative methods of obtaining disability coverage. In most instances, disability insurance is not as expensive or inaccessible as you may have been lead to believe, and it’s vital that you have it so you do not face financial hardship or even ruin due to an accident or incident out of your control.
