Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable and episode disease which can have a profound impact on the ability to earn a living. Should maintaining employment income become difficult or no longer possible, it is important to understand the income supports and disability benefits available and how to access them. This webinar helps participants gather information about EI Sickness Benefits, Long Term Disability, and Canada Pension Plan – Disability, in order to plan for the future, in the case that ability to work is at some point impacted by MS.
