Understanding Long-Term Disability
Long-term disability insurance coverage pays a disabled individual a percentage of their pre-disability income and provides financial help to meet daily living expenses. It may be offered to employees by their employer, or purchased separately by the employee. It provides coverage when the employee is disabled and as a result, is unable to work.
The Difference Is In The Policy Details
With long-term disability coverage, the insurance policy will dictate what happens with the insurance claim. Every plan and policy is different. Employees should obtain a copy of their long-term disability group insurance plan or individual policy. It will provide key information about the scope of coverage and the timelines for benefits.

Employer-Provided Coverage vs. Privately Purchased: Claims are Handled Differently
When long-term disability insurance is obtained through the employer, the claim is typically governed by a complex set of federal laws known as the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). ERISA imposes strict guidelines for the filing and processing of a disability claim. If the employee purchased coverage apart from the employer, under state law Martin attorneys can help bring a breach of contract claim against the insurer. We will work to secure the coverage the employee paid for and is entitled to under the policy. If you must file a long-term disability claim, Martin Law can assist you at any point in the process; from application for benefits, to the administrative appeals process, to litigation.
