Long Term Disability Lawyer in Flint

Applying for Disability Benefits in Michigan

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.

  • Obtain a claim form from your insurance company or from your employer if your coverage is through your workplace.
  • Collect proof from your doctor of your disability. This might include a medical certificate supporting your LTD application and recommendations on how to improve your condition and when you might return to work.
  • Complete the claim form with your statement detailing the circumstances of your ailment and get a statement from your doctor. You may also need an employer’s statement and a description of your job.
  • Submit the application and await the assessment of your claim.
