If you are suffering from a medical condition that prevents you from working and your employer offers short-term disability benefits under a group policy, you can make an application with your insurer for these benefits.
You can obtain an application from your employer and the length of time and the amount of the benefit depends on your disability plan. When making your initial application for short-term disability benefits it is important that you have your doctor’s support. Your doctor will also complete a form as part of the application process outlining the nature of your disability preventing you from working.
If your employer or insurance company denies your short-term disability benefits, we can help. I am more than please to discuss any concern you may have about your short-term disability claim. Your initial consultation is free. There are no upfront legal fees and you don’t pay our legal fees unless we get you money.
