At BC Life, we believe there is a difference between having symptoms and being disabled.
There is also a difference between being disabled from one's occupation and disabled

employees get back to making the most of their abilities.

this difficult period in their lives, we work with the employee, the employer or
plan administrator and various other support systems. Our success depends on our
ability to work collaboratively.
Disability management should be about more than just replacing wages after serious
illness or injury has occurred. Ensuring your workforce is operating at maximum
capacity includes taking an integrated and proactive approach to workplace wellness
to reduce absenteeism and presenteeism. By providing programs such as Employee and
Family Assistance to you can support your employees through life issues that can
affect their productivity at work.
