Understanding Long-Term Disability Insurance Claims

Millions of Americans suffer from disabilities that limit or prevent them from being able to perform their job. Long-term disability insurance protects employees who are unable to work for an extended period of time due to illness, injury or workplace accident by paying their loss of income.

Many employed Americans have long-term disability insurance coverage through their employer. And if your employer does not offer this as part of the benefits package you can purchase Long-Term Disability Insurance on your own. Long-term disability insurance is a critical benefit to have in order to cover your income if you unexpectedly become unable to work.

How Difficult is it to Get Your Long-Term Disability Insurance Benefits if You Become Disabled and Unable to Work?

Obtaining your long-term disability insurance can be difficult and requires a complex claims process. The claims process can take months and is usually administered by a company or an in-house claims administrator. Whether your claim is approved or denied relies heavily on the Administrative Record. Once the Administrative Record is closed it can be used against your claim as evidence.
