Unfortunately, denying or terminating long term disability claims has become common practice for insurance giants and government agencies in the United States. If you have a claim rejected despite meeting all eligibility criteria, contact a social security disability law office in Flint, Michigan.
Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., is proudly serving Flint, MI, and the surrounding areas for disability cases and long term disability insurance claims.
If you become permanently injured on the job and are applying for workers’ comp, you must give your employer written notice of your injury within 90 days of its occurrence. The worker must then file a claim within the statute of limitations, which is two years in Michigan.
There are multiple ways to file SSDI (social security disability insurance) or SSI (supplemental security income) claims in Michigan. You can do so in person at your local social security office, or you can contact the SSA over the phone. For SSDI, you can also apply online at the SSA official government website. If you have been working long enough to be insured, and your disability meets the SSDI’s standards, you should be eligible for coverage.
If you have private insurance, you can file an LTD (long-term disability claim) with your insurance provider by going through a few simple steps.
If your claim is denied by your insurance company or a government agency, you need to contact a reputable law firm and let seasoned disability attorneys handle the appeals process.
