There are few things more important to those who can no longer return to work because of a disability than receiving long term disability benefits. These benefits allow them to continue on with their lives and retain their standard of living despite being unable to work for a regular paycheck. Unfortunately, insurance companies are in it for the money, and they seldom easily award LTD benefits to those who truly need them. Further, at times, insurance companies will even try to revoke people’s long term disability benefits months or years after issuing them. This is more common than you may think. Please continue reading and reach out to our nationwide long term disability attorneys to learn more about LTD benefits and how our legal team can help you protect your future LTD benefits. Here are some of the questions you may have:
Why do I need to protect my future LTD benefits?
Receiving the benefits you deserve and need is a huge relief. Unfortunately, the battle oftentimes is not over there. In many cases, insurance companies will require disabled individuals who are receiving LTD benefits to continuously submit medical and other documentation to prove that they are still disabled and require LTD benefits. In certain cases, insurance companies will even hire a private investigator to follow you around and ensure that you are not doing anything that your disability prevents you from doing. For example, if you have a medical condition that makes it hard for you to walk, but they see you working in your garden, they may question whether you truly require LTD benefits. This is a very serious situation, and you should not proceed alone.
