If you wait to register for these programs until you are out due to an unexpected accident, illness or pregnancy and you do not have any sick leave available, you will not receive a paycheck. Once an accident or injury occurs, it’s too late to register for Income Protection plans. In order to become eligible for Income Protection benefits, you must register prior to exhausting your sick days and to any preexisting medical conditions.
