Should I Stop Working?
Are you still working but considering going on a disability leave?
You have worked hard your whole life, but when a new or worsening medical condition is making it hard to do your job and you are unable to work, it may be time to stop and apply for your disability benefits. It’s only natural to have questions about the process. Contact us to set up a free consultation – we can help you understand your insurance benefits and what kind of disability support is available to you.
Applying for Benefits
Are you off work and applying for your disability benefits?
Applying for disability benefits can be an overwhelming process for many. You may have questions along the way, and we can offer you guidance. If you have already submitted your claim and are waiting for a response from your insurance company, we can talk through what to expect as you wait for your answer. It is best to prepare yourself for any situation and to have a plan in place whether you are approved or denied.
Approved Your Benefits
Have your disability benefits been approved, but you’re concerned about the future?
At a time when you are most fragile, your hope is that your insurance company will be there to support you. However, the more you are in contact with your case manager, the more you realize that their only interest is to get you back to work and off claim as quickly as possible. They may try and make you feel guilty for being on a disability claim and create doubt about your situation. They may try and push you to return to work, continuously ask for medical updates or even arrange for you to speak to one of their doctors. They may use the change of definition or their investigation or surveillance tactics. It is best to be ready for any situation and to know your rights when they try and push you to do something you and your doctors don’t want. If you’re concerned about your future on long term disability, we can prepare you for what’s to come – whatever it happens to be.
Change of Definition
Is your change of definition nearing, but you don’t know what that means?
After two years of receiving your disability claim, insurance companies will start investigating to see if you are able to do another type of job outside of the job you were doing prior to going on disability leave. Your claim is changing from the “own occupation” stage to the “any occupation” stage and it is important to understand what your rights are and if you are entitled to benefits past this point. Your insurance company may tell you that you are not, but it doesn’t mean they are right. Most people are entitled to receive long term disability benefits until they turn 65 years old. Contact us to learn more about the change of definition and to prepare yourself for any outcome.
Denied Disability Benefits
Have your short term disability or long term disability benefit been denied and you don’t know what to do next?
Your insurance company has denied your disability benefits at a time when you need them most. They want you to return to work, but you are not physically or mentally able to do so. Are they right to do this? We don’t think so and it’s important that you contact us as soon as possible to arrange a free consultation. We will go over your case to see how we can assist and make you aware of the options that exist to fight their decision.
We specialize in disability law
Disability claims: Employee benefits
Many full-time employees pay into long term disability benefits through a group benefits package. However, insurance companies often make these benefits difficult to understand or access in order to save money. Group disability cases are usually focused on securing medical evidence to prove the disability to the insurance companies and they contain important time limits that are not always clear. Our lawyers have the experience to assist you at various stages of the disability claim process.
Disability claims: Privately purchased
Many professionals, business owners, freelancers, and consultants pay into private disability benefits. Disability claims made under these policies tend to be highly scrutinized by the insurance company and benefit from early support and legal representation. Our lawyers have the experience to assist you at various stages of the LTD claim process.
