One of the most interesting aspects of working at Canadian Disability Benefits is the wide variety of people we meet and the fascinating life stories that so many of them have to share. While it is quite common that we have no idea what a client might be suffering from they come to us with a mental illness disability claim, physical disabilities are immediately identifiable in the majority of cases. While this is good news for us as we immediately know how best to move forward with their claim, the visible disability and the reaction of the public can be the cruelest part of life.
