If you or someone you know has Parkinson’s Disease, you most likely see first-hand just how significantly it can impact a person’s life. Unfortunately, in many cases, Parkinson’s Disease will impair a person’s movements and speech, and, at its worst, it can also impair the person’s brain function. No matter where you or your loved one is with this disease, as long as it prevents the person from returning to work, they should consider their legal options, namely obtaining long term disability benefits. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced nationwide long term disability attorneys to learn more about Parkinson’s Disease and how we can help you receive the LTD benefits you deserve. Here are some of the questions you may have:
How do I know if my Parkinson’s Disease will qualify for LTD Benefits?
As you may know, it is often not enough to simply say that you can’t return to work. Unfortunately, for many, they have to go through an exhaustive process to help prove that they truly qualify for LTD benefits. To qualify for LTD benefits with Parkinson’s Disease, you must prove that your disease prevents you from controlling movements of at least two extremities despite being treated for the disease for at least three months. Additionally, you are required to prove that the disease inhibits your ability to walk, move your arms, or stand. If you can prove that you’ve experienced a “marked” change in physical or mental condition, you should receive the benefits you need.
How can long term disability benefits help me?
Fortunately for many, long term disability benefits can prove them and their families with the financial security they need to move on with their lives, despite being unable to receive a regular paycheck from work. As long as we can prove that you truly require these benefits, you should receive either a one lump-sum payment, or regular disability payments. If you have any further questions or you believe you will qualify and are ready to begin the process, please do not hesitate to speak with our competent legal team at once. We are prepared to guide you through every step of the process ahead to help ensure you receive the benefits you and your family deserve.
