In San Jose, 5.0% of the population that is under age 65 have a disability. Luckily, employer-funded disability insurance policies (as well as those paid by the employee as part of a group plan benefit with the employer) may provide short term disability benefits and long term disability benefits. If the illness or injury that prevents you from working is expected to last 12 months or longer, you may also be eligible to receive Social Security Disability benefits.
San Jose Long Term Disability, ERISA, and Disability Insurance Claims
We are dedicated to helping long term disability claimants get the benefits they deserve. We help clients file administrative appeals and lawsuits against LTD insurance companies. We handle both group disability claims that are typically governed by ERISA regulations, as well as individual disability insurance (“IDI” or “DI”) policy claims. Although we do not usually handle short term disability claims, we may be able to help if you also have a long term disability policy that may be impacted. Occasionally the insurance company will offer to buy out your claim for a lump sum, in which case we will help you evaluate the offer.
