Long-Term Disability Claims And Appeals Process

You hoped that things would turn out differently, but you’re now in the position of facing an illness or injury that is going to keep you out of work for the foreseeable future.

Most likely, you’ve exhausted your short-term disability (STD) benefits or they were denied, and now you need to go through the process of applying for long-term disability (LTD) benefits through your employer’s group plan or your own, individually obtained plan. Long-term disability providers are known for being much more stringent about benefits, so you can’t afford to make any mistakes along the way. My firm can help you get the long-term benefits you need.

For A Successful Claim, Mind The Details

No matter which company your employer-sponsored or individually purchased plan is from, the application process will require obtaining some form of the following types of information:

  • Your statement
  • Your employer’s statement
  • Detailed information about your illness(es) or injury/ies
  • A statement from an attending physician

If you’ve already been out of work for an extended period of time, you’re already likely feeling the financial pressure of not getting a full paycheck. You can’t afford the potential delays that come with an incomplete, rejected or denied claim. As an experienced disability claims attorney, I will make sure your application is as complete as possible in order to maximize the likelihood that your claim is approved with minimal delay.

No amount of due diligence, however, changes the fact that insurance companies are businesses that will do anything to look out for their bottom line — including denying legitimate claims. In the event that your claim is denied for any reason, I can pursue every available form of relief, including filing an appeal or filing a lawsuit.
