As you know, Alzheimer’s disease is incredibly serious for all who have it. Though there are ways to potentially slow its progression, as of now, there is no cure. Unfortunately, many people throughout the United States receive Alzheimer’s disease diagnoses each year, and if you are one of them, there is a chance that you now find it more and more difficult to perform daily tasks, such as going to work, as Alzheimer’s has a significant impact on a person’s memory, among other functions. Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced nationwide long term disability attorneys to learn more about whether your Alzheimer’s disease qualifies for long term disability benefits and how our firm can help you through each step of the process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if my Alzheimer’s disease qualifies for long term disability benefits?

If you are someone who has developed Alzheimer’s disease and you find yourself unable to return to work, you and your long term disability attorneys will have to prove that your disease truly qualifies for LTD benefits in order for you to receive them. First, you will speak with your employer or insurer to learn about your policy, and from there, you will file your claim within 180 days. In this claim, our firm will have to gather and present a wide array of evidence to prove that you truly qualify for long term disability benefits. This can include doctor’s notes, x-rays, medical documents, your family medical history, and more. As long as we can prove that your Alzheimer’s prevents you from returning to work for the foreseeable future, you should receive the LTD benefits you deserve.
