How can long term disability insurance help me?
Long term disability insurance will allow you to receive either one lump-sum payment from your insurance company, or monthly payments that will enable you and your family uphold your standard of life while missing your paycheck due to your disability or illness. Our firm has helped countless individuals obtain these benefits over the years, and we know that we have what it takes to do the same for you. However, you should understand that receiving these benefits is not always easy, as insurance companies will sometimes try and deny individuals their rightful benefits, which is why you need an experienced team of long term disability attorneys on your side. Walker & Hern is that team.
Can I get LTD benefits if I have lymphoma?
If you are looking to receive LTD benefits for your lymphoma, you must demonstrate that you either have Indolent lymphoma that requires more than one round of chemo within the year, or that you have aggressive lymphoma that did not disappear after one round of chemotherapy. If you received a bone marrow transplant, however, you will qualify for at least one year’s worth of LTD insurance. Our firm will use doctor’s notes, your medical history, and other documentation that you truly qualify for LTD benefits.
When will I start receiving disability payments?
In most cases, you will receive your first check within 90 days of qualifying. Unfortunately, there are times where individuals will have to wait months, or even more than one year, to start receiving LTD benefits. This can be incredibly stressful for those who need these benefits, which is why our long term disability attorneys are here to expedite the process as quickly as possible.
