I underwent an independent medical exam at the request of my insurance company. Their doctor reported that I had no symptoms of chronic pain and was fit to work. It just so happens that on that particular day, I was feeling better than usual. Now my benefits have been cut off. Do I have any hope of overturning this decision?

Long Term Disability - Question 50
Entitlement to disability benefits is not frozen in time, and if you were having a better than usual day on the day of an assessment, that doesn’t mean you have no chance trying to recover further benefits.   If your own doctors support your ongoing inability to work and your condition generally waxes and wanes, ie., you have some good days and some bad days, this one-time snapshot of your health does not mean your case is over.  The particular circumstances of your claim need to be thoroughly discussed with a disability lawyer to assess your chances of success.
