There are few diseases more potentially devastating than Alzheimer’s disease. Unfortunately, a great number of our population is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s every single year. In many cases, as Alzheimer’s disease progresses, it can make it more and more difficult for the individual to perform his or her daily tasks, much less return to work. If you are someone who has recently been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, you are most likely now seeking long-term disability benefits to help you and your family financially through this time. Please continue reading and speak with our knowledgeable nationwide long term disability attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through every step of the legal process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How can long term disability insurance help me and my family?
When an individual receives long term disability benefits, they will either receive one lump-sum payment or monthly insurance payments. This form of financial assistance can help cover the cost of medical bills, help take care of things around the house, and more, which is why the sooner you apply, the better. Our experienced team of attorneys is here to help you receive these payments so you and your family can have peace of mind.
How do I know if I qualify for long term disability benefits?
To qualify for long term disability benefits, the first thing you must do is speak either with your insurer or your employer to learn more about your policy and the potential benefits it may allow. From here, you will have to file your long term disability claim within 180 days. To prove that you truly qualify for these benefits, you should immediately contact an attorney and from there, you should seek medical care. You will have to gather a wide variety of documents concerning your medical condition, including MRIs, medical history, and, perhaps most importantly, doctor’s notes regarding how your disability affects your everyday life, thereby preventing you from returning to work. As long as you can prove that you truly qualify, you should receive the disability benefits you and your family deserve and need to move on with your lives and focus on what matters most.
The bottom line is that if you need disability benefits, the time to act is now. If you are ready to get started or you have any additional questions, simply give us a call today.
