How do I know if my lupus will qualify for long term disability benefits?

As long as you are able to prove that your condition involves two or more organs/body systems, at least one has a moderate level of severity, and you are affected by at least two symptoms of the condition, there is a strong chance that you will have a valid long term disability claim. That being said, you may have to prove that you’ve experienced these symptoms for a period of time. The condition must bring about at least two constitutional symptoms and limitations in your daily life. Our firm can use a wide array of medical documents and doctor’s notes to prove that you truly qualify for long term disability benefits.

How can receiving long term disability help me?

When someone’s claim is successful, they will receive either a lump-sum payment or monthly insurance payments. These payments should help you and your family remain financially stable, even after you’re unable to return to work and collect a regular paycheck. That being said, if your initial disability claim has been denied, now is not the time to panic. Instead, simply retain the services of a knowledgeable long term disability attorney who can effectively navigate the appeals process. As long as we find additional evidence to prove that you truly require LTD benefits, you will most likely be approved.
