Will my Chron’s disease qualify for LTD benefits?
The first thing you should understand about long term disability benefits is that not everyone can receive them. Even some people with serious illnesses are deemed ineligible by insurance companies, which is why it is so important that anyone seeking these benefits retains the services of a competent attorney who can work to prove that they truly qualify. Once you hire us, we will speak with your employer or insurer and file your claim within 180 days. It is paramount that you retain competent legal assistance when filing your claim, as this is our chance to provide evidence proving that you truly qualify for these benefits. In your claim, we will include a wide array of evidence, including medical records, test results, and, perhaps most importantly, doctor’s notes. As long as we can prove that your Chron’s disease prevents you from returning to work, we should receive the LTD benefits you need.
What can long term disability benefits cover?
Fortunately for those who receive them, long term disability benefits can significantly ease the pain of being unable to receive a regular paycheck from work. Depending on your case, you will receive either one lump-sum disability payout or monthly disability payments. You should begin receiving these payments within months of approval.
