Long and Short Term Disability Insurance
People often pay disability insurance premiums for years but never need to make a claim. Many employers provide short- and long- term disability insurance with their benefits packages. Fortunately, most people with these benefits never need to use them.
Disability insurance can be a lifeline to those who become sick or injured and unable to work. Unfortunately, after an injury or illness occurs that makes it impossible to work, claims for disability benefits are often denied even where there is medical evidence that proves the disability.
The disability insurance application process can be overwhelming and frustrating. You paid for the benefits or earned these benefits from your employer to help you if you should become disabled, so you deserve to receive them.
It is good to consult with an experienced attorney before you file for benefits or get denied because at the beginning of the claim process the insurance company may ask you to submit information that it will later use against you. Many long term disability insurance carriers intimidate policyholders or manipulate them into thinking their options are limited.
