Short-term and long-term disability insurance plans can provide individuals with income when they are physically or mentally unable to work. The terms of the plan govern eligibility and benefit levels, subject to applicable laws and regulations. If your claim is denied, refer to the plan document for information on how to appeal the denial. Many denials can be resolved by simply providing additional medical documentation to substantiate your disability. Keep in mind that certain deadlines may apply, so you should review the plan document and file your appeal in a timely manner.
Sometimes a social security disability attorney is required to help ensure you receive the benefits you need, so we invite you to contact us if you would like us to handle the appeal process for you. We help residents in Troy, Detroit & Northern Indiana.
