Applying for short term disability generally requires that you complete an application form and send in a medical form completed by your family doctor.
- If the short term disability is available to you through your job, you get the application and medical form from your employer.
- If the short term disability is through a private policy, contact your insurance company or insurance broker to get the forms you will need to fill out.
Apply as soon as possible and always inquire if there is a time limit to complete the application.
If you are out of time do not assume you are prevented from claiming under the policy, contact a lawyer immediately.
