Thunder Bay Injured Workers information & advocacy session


What does ‘Retirement’ look like for WSIB Claimants with Permanent Disabilities? Becky Casey, Peri Ballantyne and Pat Vienneau compare two groups of WSIB claimants with long-term permanent impairments who describe themselves as retired – those who voluntarily retired and those who involuntarily retired. They show how those who involuntarily retired are much younger, in worse health, and will likely face financial challenges as they get older. The researchers will discuss what might happen to the financial situation of these injured workers when they turn 65. Data are from the Research Action Alliance on the Consequences of Work Injury (RAACWI) 10-year follow up survey.
