Ask A Disability Lawyer

I am suffering from terrible anxiety. My doctor has asked me to take some time off but my employer disagrees and told the case manager at our group insurance company that I seemed fine. The case manager stated that there is no evidence of a disability and denied my claim. I would like to file an appeal. What can I do to strengthen my case?

Disability Benefits - Question 85
It is very important to have strong support from your treating physicians; however, many are too busy or don’t understand the claims process. So, if your claim has been denied and both you and your doctors feel that you are not capable of returning to work, you should consult a lawyer well-versed in disability insurance law.
