Parkinson’s Disease can be a devastating disease, and if you are someone who has developed Parkinson’s, there is a very good chance that you now find yourself unable to return to work. Not only does Parkinson’s disease impair movements and make it difficult to speak, but it can also impair the brain to a certain extent. In many cases, those who suffer from Parkinson’s Disease will develop dementia that only becomes worse as the disease progresses. If you find yourself in a situation where you are unable to return to work as a result of this condition, you should strongly consider retaining the services of a knowledgeable nationwide long term disability attorney who can work to obtain the LTD benefits you and your family deserve and need to have peace of mind. Here are some of the questions you may have regarding the process ahead:
How can long term disability insurance benefit me?
When you receive long term disability insurance, you will either obtain one lump-sum payment or monthly payments, depending on your situation. These payments can help ensure that you have the finances to maintain your standard of life even after you’re unable to return to work and receive a regular paycheck.
Does Parkinson’s Disease Qualify for LTD benefits?
To receive long term disability benefits for Parkinson’s Disease, you will have to prove that you can no longer control movements of at least two extremities despite at least three months of treatment. You must also prove that you have difficulty walking, moving your arms, or standing. You can also obtain these benefits if you prove that you have “marked” physical problems as well as a “marked” limitation in thinking.
When do I receive my first LTD payment?
In most cases, you may receive your first LTD payment within 90 days of approval. Unfortunately, this is not always the case, and at times, some people will have to wait months, or even as long as a year to receive the benefits to which they are truly entitled. This is unacceptable, which is why our firm is here to expedite the process as quickly as possible.
