You have my claim; how long do I wait for a decision? What is the LTD claim process?
If they have the necessary information, Canada Life (CL) often turns around a decision within a few weeks. However, it is not unusual for CL to require further medical information, or a clarification on the medical information submitted, as part of the application. If this is the case, members are notified by CL. It is likely CL will telephone a member for an interview prior to the decision. Once a decision has been reached, the member is contacted by telephone with a follow-up letter.
