Is there a deadline for filing a long term disability claim once I stop working?

If your disability policy was issued through your employer, you will usually be required to file within 30 days from when you stopped working.  Private individual disability policies contain varying deadlines to file your claim.  Please read your policy to ensure that you do not miss this deadline.

Gonzalez-Sirgo, P.A. represents individuals that have had their valid long term disability benefits denied, delayed or terminated irrespective of whether the policy was purchased individually or issued through an employer group policy.  The firm is available to assist individuals with the initial application process, during the administrative appeals process, handling denials of claims or termination of benefits, litigation in state or federal court, and negotiating a one-time lump sum settlement or buy-out.  Please contact our office to discuss your case in more detail.
