In San Jose, 5.0% of the population under age 65 have a disability. Fortunately, long term disability insurance policies that pay benefits if you are unable to work due to a covered disability are available. If your illness or injury prevents you from working for 12 months or longer, you may also qualify for Social Security Disability benefits from the Social Security Administration.
Disability Insurance Claims in San Jose
We are dedicated to helping disabled individuals get the benefits they deserve. When an insurance company wrongfully denies a disability claim, we are there to file administrative appeals and lawsuits against the carrier. We handle both group disability claims governed by ERISA law and individual disability insurance (“IDI” or “DI”) policy claims. If your insurance company has offered to buy out your claim for a lump sum, we can help you evaluate the offer and negotiate with the insurer.
