A Winnipeg advisor is among those facing a civil action alleging he deliberately misrepresented a client’s answers on a critical-illness questionnaire in order to collect commission.

    So when they did the telephone medical interview and the paramedical review he told them as well? Something doesn't add up.

    Chances are, the age amount requirement was only a non medical. Therefore, no Tele or Para was required.

    Another great reason to review the app with client at delivery...the omission would have been apparent on the clients copy...

    Well said, "I was devastated, quite panicked and emotionally shot. I was speechless for days. How would you feel if you felt you were safe and secure and the rug was pulled out from underneath you?" I am an advisor and I was under the illusion that I had a safety net as well - only for GWL's 'specialist' to contradict 2 other specialists and say I was fine. Being involved in my own lawsuit against GWL it is absolutely cruel what the companies are allowed to do - people in ivory towers making decisions that affect peoples lives - I was left bankrupt and on the verge of killing myself as it would have been easier until thankfully a friend made me turn my back on the industry I love so much and seek out a lawyer to file a lawsuit myself.

    Good reason to answer all the questions truthfully and checking those answers when the policy is delivered.

    Another great reason to just get clients name and number and forward the medical questions to be asked by the carrier. Honestly, I don't want to know my client's medical history, and quite frankly it's none of my business.
