I've been off work for 4 weeks now and although my employer is paying me, they hire manulife to make the decision wether or not to pay me.
So Manulife was supposed to call me within 48 hours of my last day of work and I hadn't heard anything until last Wednesday, so the rep. e-mailed me my form to get my doctor filled out and I faxed that Wednesday morning and last night got a call saying all was good and I am approved!
What a relief. That not knowing was driving me crazy! I had no idea if I should budget a full pay or not. This way starting at 7 weeks I will still get 75% of my income and then at 13 weeks it drops down to 55% but by then my mat. leave will be starting and that's 55% for a full year so I'll be used to it already.
Now hopefully I can get some well needed rest and start feeling better!!
