Frequently asked questions

 

1. What is the payout schedule for the TD Accident Disability Insurance Plan?

You’ll receive tax-free monthly benefits – paid directly to you and deposited into your bank account – for up to 24 months if you become disabled as a direct result of a covered accident. Monthly benefits will begin 30 days after the date you become disabled (Elimination Period). You will also receive one additional tax-free recovery benefit payment at the end of your disability period.

2. Is accidental death insurance the same as accident disability insurance?

Accidental Death Insurance provides a lump sum benefit to the named beneficiary(ies) or estate of the life insured in the event of death caused by a covered accident.

Accidental Death Insurance provides a lump sum benefit to the named beneficiary(ies) or estate of the life insured in the event of death caused by a covered accident.

3. What is considered a disability under TD Accident Disability Insurance Plan?

If the Insured Person is working at least 20 hours per week and is employed at the starting date of disability:

Disability means that due to an injury, the insured person:

  • is unable to perform the essential duties of their regular occupation; and
  • is not working in any gainful occupation; and
  • is under the regular care of a physician and receiving suitable treatment.

  • is unable to perform the essential duties of any gainful occupation for which they have the minimum qualifications; and
  • is not working at all; and
  • is under the regular care of a physician and receiving suitable treatment.

4. What if I already have a coverage for accident insurance?

A good approach would be to review your current coverage to ensure you have what you require and if needed, you can always top it up with additional coverage options.

5. How much Accident Disability Insurance do I need?

The amount of coverage you need depends on your specific circumstances. A first step you can take to find out how much coverage you need is to determine how much money your loved ones would need to support you financially if you were to become disabled as a direct result of a covered accident and are unable to work. You can consider factors such as:

  • Lost income
  • Outstanding loans and debts
  • Your children’s education costs and
  • Your family’s lifestyle.
