      I understand the insurance companies do not like to pay out - period. I am covered by long term disability insurance, but what type of illness do I put on the form in order to get approved - or should I just forget it, and try to cope as long as I can and then go for early pension? My tinnitus is getting so bad that just to sleep I need 3 different meds. I use a white noise generator and have white noise constantly at night, but last week I had a dental drilling procedure that has made my tinnitus a whole lot worse and currently I am in a bad state.

      I do not know the protocol in Canada. I would ask your doctor or call one of those attorneys that advertise on TV all the time.

      Here in the US people have gotten disability because of tinnitus.

      Hi object16, I am in the disability process in Ontario, Canada.
      I say if you have a year until you can retire, just wait it out. You can PM me if you have any questions.

      P.S. which part of Canada are you from?
