It's never too late to claim a pension for your work injury, or a reassessment
For those injured before January 1, 1990, in Ontario, Canada, there is always time to request a pension from the Workplace Safety & Insurance Board (WSIB). And there is still time to request a reassessment of a previously awarded pension. If, at any point, you were denied a pension, you can still proceed with that by employing Section 121 of the Workplace Safety & Insurance Act (WSIA) and requesting a reconsideration of that decision.
The bottom line is if you have had ongoing problems with the area you were injured that have persisted since your injury, and your doctors can provide a medical opinion that supports your claim; you can still pursue it.
Other benefits would flow from the WSIB's decision to deny you a pension if they were to reconsider their decision. You would likely be entitled to arrears benefits, interest, and a monthly pension going forward for life!
It's not uncommon for the WSIB to deny pensions and reassessment of previously awarded pensions. It happens all the time. We have a simple process at wsibsettlements.com to help you should you decide to pursue it.
