Statute of Limitations for Filing a Long Term Disability Claim

When facing the challenge of securing long-term disability (LTD) benefits, understanding the statute of limitations for filing a claim is crucial. In South Carolina, as in many jurisdictions, the specific timeframe within which you must file an LTD claim can vary depending on the terms of your insurance policy. Typically, insurance policies require that a claim be filed within a certain period after you become disabled or after the elimination period outlined in your policy, which is usually 90 to 180 days.

It’s important to be aware that the statute of limitations not only applies to the initial filing of your claim but also to any legal action you may need to take if your claim is denied. Under ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act), which governs most employer-provided long-term disability insurance plans, you generally have a 180-day period to appeal a denied claim. If your appeal is not successful, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit to challenge the denial varies but typically starts from the date of the final denial of your appeal.

In South Carolina, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit against an insurance company for a denied LTD claim can be governed by state contract law, which often allows a three to six-year period from the date of the final denial. However, it’s vital to review your policy’s specific language and consult with an experienced LTD attorney to determine the exact limitations period applicable to your case.
