Who Are Income Replacement Benefits for?

 

If you were employed prior to a car accident, you may be eligible for income replacement benefits. If you have lost your income for a period of time due to the accident, you may be eligible to receive a payment to replace your income every two weeks.

 

 

Are You Eligible for Income Replacement Benefits?

 

Your lawyer will be able to determine if you are eligible for income replacement benefits, although there are a few questions that you can answer on your own in order to see if you qualify.

 

If you answer “yes” to these questions, then you may be eligible for income replacement benefits:

 

*Did you suffer a physical or psychological injury within two years of a motor vehicle accident and are you unable to work as a result of this?

* Were you employed prior to the accident?

*Did you work for a length of 26 weeks in the last 52 weeks prior to the accident?

*Were you receiving Employment Insurance Benefits?

 

If you can answer any of these questions with a “yes” answer, then you might be eligible, but contact a lawyer to ensure that you receive the maximum income replacement benefits that you are entitled to.
