Not Sure How to Apply… Claim Denied… Need to Appeal?

Long-Term Disability

An LTD Attorney Can Help

 

You’re disabled and cannot work. Are you receiving the benefits you deserve under your long-term disability (LTD) policy? Maybe your claim has been turned down, and you need to appeal.

 

No matter what stage of the process you’re in, talking with a long-term disability (LTD) attorney will get you answers, and speed you toward receiving your payments.

 

Applying for Disability Can Be Confusing and Complicated

Long-term disability policies can be lengthy and packed with difficult legal terms. Plus, if your disability insurance is through your employer, it may fall under a federal law called ERISA. This law has strict rules for how you need to apply for benefits or file an appeal. It also affects your chances of approval.

 

Many First-Time Claims are Denied

The claims administrator looking at your application will most likely be employed by your insurance company… so even justified claims are often denied at first.

 

Or, a denial can be due to:

 

  • Insufficient medical evidence: a lack of regular medical treatment, adequate records or a doctor’s statement
  • Failure to meet your policy’s definition of disability
  • Video surveillance by the insurance company that conflicts with your claim
  • Missed application deadlines
