Indiana Long Term Disability Lawyers
Injuries, illness, and medical conditions can result in disabilities that may leave a person unable to work and support their family. If a person is employed when the disability develops, the employer may have a short and/or long term disability policy that will pay a percentage of your salary if the person is unable to continue working. To find out if a person is covered under a short or long term disability policy, the person should speak with the human resource department. The human resource employee should be able to provide the person with the application for short and long term disability insurance.
If the disability is expected to last at least one year, then the person may also qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. It is important to apply for all benefits that you may be entitled to, as the definition of disability for short and long term disability is different that it is for Social Security Disability benefits. It is possible to qualify for one, but not the other.
All of these benefits can be an invaluable form of financial assistance for those who can no longer work to support themselves, but they can be difficult to receive in a timely manner without the support of a legal professional.
