Ask A Disability Lawyer

My job has disabled me. I can no longer cope with the stress and difficulties. Could I get retraining to pursue a new career and have that paid for by my disability insurance?

Disability Benefits - Question 125
If your claim has been approved and benefits continue to be paid beyond the “change-of- definition,” then the insurer might provide some retraining assistance with the hope of getting you back to work and off insurance benefits. They could also try to use re-training to terminate your benefits if their efforts are unsuccessful. If your claim is terminated at any time, retraining considerations can be factored into settlement discussions. In such a situation, you should consult a disability insurance lawyer.
