Important issues to look for
We will help you look for important issues that need to be addressed. Some of the common ones include:
- Long term disability insurance providers may actually require you to apply for Social Security disability income (SSDI) (also referred to as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). If you don't, they could cut off your coverage.
- If you are successful in getting SSDI or SSI, long term disability insurance providers may be able to reduce the amount of benefits they provide you.
- If you are successful in getting SSDI or SSI and you are entitled to past-due benefits, long term disability providers may try to seek reimbursement from the past-due benefits for the benefits they have provided.
No charge unless we get results
All cases involving Social Security and long term disability insurance are handled on a contingency basis, which means we don't charge unless we get results. If we are successful, we will only ask for a percentage of the past due benefits you are entitled to. This percentage is set and capped by statute.
