Applying for Long Term Disability Benefits
Professionals, and self-employed people undergo the highest level of scrutiny from the insurance company when it comes to filing a claim for long term disability benefits. This is largely due to the broad scope of occupational duties engaged in and the high dollar amount of the claimant’s monthly disability benefits.

If you fall within this category, you may have been struggling with medical conditions for a lengthy period of time, making every effort to carry on your professional and business activities, and trying to avoid having to make a claim for LTD benefits. At some point, you may reach the point where you can no longer work. The disability insurance company may try to suggest that the disability is only partial or residual (terms usually defined within the applicable
policy), and that you can continue many of the occupational duties that you had carried on previously. The timing, medical documentation, occupational activity documentation and financial documentation are crucial in considering how best to proceed with one of these claims.
