Filing a Claim for Benefits

The Disability Insurance Application

One of the most important aspects of a claim for disability benefits is completing the application and submitting it to the insurance carrier. Your application can help you or haunt you throughout your claim.

While the application typically looks straight forward and easy to complete, the information you provide can mean the difference between proving your claim and foreclosing your right to benefits. As such, completing the application should not be taken lightly. The help of an experienced attorney who understands the process can be invaluable and may have a dramatic impact on the progress of your claim.

Remember, your insurance carrier created the application. Typically the format is set up to benefit your insurance carrier, not you. The success of your claim for disability benefits can hinge on clearly explaining how your condition affects your ability to perform your job. A single wrong statement by you or your physician can be disastrous to your claim.
