Skip To Content Ontario. All FSCO. This is the designated form for both insurance companies and injured workers to use for assigning workers' compensation WC benefits that may be payable to some workers who are injured in automobile accidents. It supercedes any existing form that deals with the assignment of WC benefits. This form takes effect immediately.
Please note that the WCB will not consider an application for the assignment of WC benefits that is requested through any other assignment form. An assignment has two purposes. First, it ensures that the claimant receives benefits when there is a dispute as to whether WC or automobile accident benefits are payable. Second, it also ensures that an automobile insurance company will be repaid if it turns out that WC benefits, and not automobile accident benefits, are payable.
The requirement to assign WC benefits arises when there is a dispute about whether WC or automobile accident benefits are payable. When such a dispute arises, the injured worker is entitled to claim benefits from the automobile insurance company on an interim basis until the dispute is settled.
If it is determined at a later date that the worker should be in receipt of WC benefits, and an approved assignment is on file, the WCB will forward the appropriate compensation benefits to the insurance company prior to forwarding any funds to the worker.
The WCB shall pay to the insurance company the compensation benefits that are payable to the worker for the same time period that the worker received insurance benefits.
If the amount of compensation payable by the WCB exceeds the amount of insurance benefits already paid, the insurance company will be reimbursed first with any surplus being paid to the worker. It is also important to know that insurance companies can only be reimbursed for benefits paid if they are similar in nature to the WC benefits, such as compensation for lost earnings or health care benefits that are covered under the Workers Compensation Act as well as the Statutory Accident Benefits Schedule SABS.
Insurance benefits such as child care expenses are not reimbursed by the WCB. Under the SABS an automobile insurance company is not required to pay benefits where there is an outstanding dispute between it and an injured worker, until the assignment is made.

Homeowners that have experienced the frustration of dealing with a loss to their home, whether by flood, fire or hurricane, can attest to the stressful nature of the re-building process. Most of these restoration services require the homeowner to sign a document called an Assignment of Benefits, prior to commencing any work. Stuck with a limited amount of options and under great stress, the homeowner signs the Assignment of Benefits and the restoration work begins.
This assignment essentially allows the restoration service company to perform its work on credit or with no immediate payment by the homeowner, leaving the homeowner with the comforting satisfaction that the restoration company will collect its fee for service from the homeowners insurance company directly. A typical Assignment of Benefits states, in part, as follows:. While it was most likely not the intent of the homeowner to assign all his or her rights to the restoration service, a plain reading of this sample Assignment of Benefits is leading insurance companies to argue that the homeowner has assigned any and all insurance rights, benefits, and proceeds under the applicable policy, including those available for the re-build of the home and under Coverages C and D, to the third party restoration service.
Some insurers are taking the position that by assigning any and all insurance rights, benefits, and proceeds under the applicable policy, homeowners have relinquished all claims available under the policy, including Additional Living Expenses and Personal Property.
Insurance Agents and Brokers
See Schuster v. It is extremely rare for homeowners to intend to assign their right to be paid for damage to their personal property to a restoration service. Similarly, homeowners usually do not intend on assigning their rights to be paid for Additional Living Expenses they must incur as a result of being ousted from their home. Good business ethics dictates that the restoration service probably did not intend for the assignment to limit the homeowners ability to pursue these benefits from their insurance company.
Regardless of the seemingly obvious intent of the parties, insurance companies are using these unqualified assignments assignments that assign all the rights, benefits and proceeds to preclude homeowners from obtaining benefits under their own homeowners insurance policy in favor of the restoration service.
Interpreting the assignment in a light most favorable to insured is one way to recover benefits under the homeowners policy after the assignment of benefits has been executed. The two most prominent ways to attack the validity of a properly executed assignment is to 1 find the assignment vague and ambiguous or 2 find the assignment qualified.
Where terms of agreement are unambiguous, the parties' intent must be discerned from the four corners of the document; in the absence of ambiguity, language itself is the best evidence of the parties' intent, and its plain meaning controls.
Fecteau v. Bank, N. A homeowner can assert that there is no claim number or date of loss identifying the rights or claim that was purportedly assigned. Moreover, this limiting language arguably indicates that the assignment only conveys rights to payment for services rendered by the restoration service company. When the assigned rights are limited by the language of the assignment, then the assignment is qualified and requires the agreement of all parties involved spouses, co-owners, mortgagees etc to be valid.
In the majority of cases, the intent of the parties to the assignment was to limit the assignment to the right to payment for the services rendered.
One last option the homeowner has available is to seek a re-assignment of benefits from the Restoration Service. After the restoration company has rendered its services, the insured is usually left with a moisture free home that has holes in the drywall, holes in the kitchen cabinets, and no flooring. As the insured still has to pursue its insurance carrier for benefits to rebuild their home, additional living expenses, and possible contents damage, the insured is the real party in interest.
That is, the person in whom rests, by substantive law, the claim sought to be enforced.A collateral assignment of life insurance is a conditional assignment appointing a lender as the primary beneficiary of a death benefit to use as collateral for a loan. Businesses readily accept life insurance as collateral due to the guarantee of funds if the borrower dies or defaults. In the event of the borrower's death before the loan's repayment, the lender receives the amount owed through the death benefit, and the remaining balance is then directed to other listed beneficiaries.
The borrower must be the owner of the policy, but not necessarily the insured, and the policy must remain current for the life of the loan with the owner continuing to pay all necessary premiums. Any type of life insurance policy is acceptable for collateral assignment, provided the insurance company allows assignment for the policy. Many lenders do not accept term life policies as collateral because they do not accumulate cash value and the term of the policy may be too short to accommodate the loan.
Some lenders will not guarantee a loan unless a life insurance policy with a collateral assignment is issued. Alternately, the policy owner's access to the cash value is restricted to protect the collateral. If the loan is repaid before the borrower's death, the assignment is removed, and the lender is no longer the beneficiary of the death benefit. Insurance companies must be notified of the collateral assignment of a policy; other than their obligation to meet the terms of the contract, they remain disinterested in the agreement.
This is a common question among business owners applying for a bank loan who want to use their life insurance as collateral to increase their chances of getting the loan. Collateral assignments make sure the lender gets paid only what they are due. If you are applying for life insurance to secure your own business loan, remember that there is no reason to make the lender the beneficiary.

Key Takeaways The borrower must be the policy owner, who may or may not be the insured. The collateral assignment may be against part or all of the policy's value, and if any amount remains, beneficiaries receive the difference.
Full repayment of the loan terminates the assignment. Kobrin, LUTCF, Fair Lawn, NJ This is a common question among business owners applying for a bank loan who want to use their life insurance as collateral to increase their chances of getting the loan.
Novation is a trilateral agreement between the original parties to a contract and the purchaser seeking to replace the seller to the contract. Novation transfers not only the rights and benefits under the original contract to the purchaser, but also the obligations, thus releasing the seller from all obligations under the original contract.
All parties to the original agreement need to consent to the new agreement. Novation has been referred to as the "Hail Mary" defence for parties seeking to avoid contractual liability, however, the standard of establishing novation is quite high. The party asserting novation must prove:.
The SCC also stated that in the absence of an express new agreement, a court should not find novation unless the circumstances are especially compelling. Unlike novation, an assignment does not extinguish the original agreement and does not create a new and separate agreement.
The original contract remains in force. Also, unlike novation, depending on the terms of the subject contract, an assignment of the contract may not require the consent of all parties to the agreement. If the contract is silent as to its assignability, then the courts have held that the contract is generally assignable, except for personal services contract, where consent must be obtained.
Assignment and assumption may be more convenient for the seller than novation given that the seller may not need to ask for consent from a third party to assign its interest in an agreement to the purchaser, however, the seller needs to be aware of the potential liabilities if the purchaser fails to perform under the assigned contract.
Although novation can protect the seller from such future liabilities, it is a more cumbersome process for all parties involved, and may not be feasible if the third party refuses to provide consent. Therefore, it is essential for parties to assess their relationship with the third party before proceeding with novation.
