Disability Insurance

Assistance with Disability Insurance When You Need it Most...

  • Don't let your disability plan deny your rightful claim
  • You can obtain benefits that have been denied
  • Don't accept a claim denial if you are disabled and unable to work.

  • When you are sick, disabled and unable to work you cannot be expected to negotiate with your disability insurance plan to obtain your benefits. Your disability plan may be governed by federal law which requires specific steps to be taken in order to appeal a denial. You may be unable to obtain assistance from the California Department of Insurance. Trying to convince an insurance company to pay your benefits when it is determined to deny them can be a frustrating experience. Having to deal with a sudden loss of income due to disability can be a personal catastrophe , but when combined with a denial of benefits the stress becomes overwhelming . Pre-planning can save you andyour family a lot of heartache. If you are disabled or are facing a serious illness, you may wish to arrange for a trusted friend or family member to act on your behalf during the time you will be incapacitated. You need to determine ahead of time the extent of your disability insurance benefits so that you plan for your economic needs.

    Ask your disability plan the following questions:

    • Will the period of disability trigger an eligibility for benefits? If so, what will the benefits be?
    • Will there be any requirements to establish the benefits eligibility?
    • What is the waiting period?
    • What are the benefits?
    • How will they be paid?
    • Are the benefits coordinated with other benefits plans, like Social Security or State Disability?
    • Will the benefits be reduced if I go back to work part time?
    • Will I still be considered disabled if I can't do my present job but can work at some other occupation that pays less?

    Your recovery should be your most important concern. You need peace of mind in order to direct your energy toward your health, rather than your disability insurance coverage. If you have concerns about your coverage or if you believe your disability plan is denying you coverage that you are entitled to, the law office of Constance N. Zarkowski can help make a trying experience more tolerable by assisting you and your family in negotiating for your entitled benefits.
