it is. They have back payed me 20 months worth and my insurance company is taking every dollar awarded me excluding the child portion of the cpp
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

This is legal. When you review your documentation about your insurance benefits you will see that you are require to seek all other sources of funding first and that this funding will reduce the amount the insurance company has to pay you.

So this is legal because you agreed to it and had to as you had no choice as they would not cover you otherwise.

This is standard unfortunately.

They can go back the 20 months.

I am sorry this is not what you were hoping to hear.
