If I am approved for disability benefits, until when will my benefits continue?

It depends on your policy provisions.  Typically, your disability insurance benefits will continue until:

  • 1. Your disability ceases or improves sufficiently for you to return to your prior job or any other gainful occupation;
  • 2. Your disability insurance policy is exhausted based on age limitations;
  • 3. Your disability insurance benefits are cut-off or terminated for one of several reasons, including failure to continue physician treatment, fraud, etc.
