You should be able to opt out of the disability insurance. Show proof of coverage to your HR.
I did. many of us did. Apparently, its take it or leave the company as nothing is being done.

Re: Writing a strong "I am dissappointed in you" letter to HR...

Rakhiji, HR can't do much about this.. it all depends on what your company people can bargain with the insurance company, what your company is ready to contribute and the number of full-time employees in the company.. if you work in a big company (> 4K employees) you will generally pay quite less and vice versa.

living in North America is a screwing experience anyway.. the first few years one ignores or doesn't take note of such stuff or is young.. but there's a time when you realize the cold hard truth (even colder in Canada) of living in the americas.

I am outraged and I feel for so many of my colleagues.

It gets progressively worse as you add dependents to your list. So many employees are literally crying, not being able to afford these plans. So many of them have already written letters to the employer saying that they cannot manage with the expensive plan. I want to write a letter too. But I am not able to find any strong words (not rude, I just need strong lines).

My colleague, who is a clerk and making basic wages is planning on quitting. She is a single mother or 3 and she cannot afford this. This is the same case for sooooo many employees.

these plans are mandatory. You cannot choose out.

Any advises?


$200 per month and you are whining?
Thats nothing compared to 95% of the insurances.
Get me a job in your company.




but wait......you are in kanneda...I don't want those freakin kannedian winters.

You paying 800 or more a month? Either it's a Cadillac Plan or any pre-existing conditions? You sure need to do something about it!!

Are you on 100% coverage plan? Also, I think most of the companies ask you to pay as per the number of dependents. Like Virgo said, perhaps its got to do with pre-existing conditions. $800 a month sounds too high.

Have you read any of my subsequent posts? Perhaps then you will understand why I am 'whining'.
