You should include a new medical condition in your disability claim if it causes an impairment in some way. However, depending on your policy language, it may or may not help your claim.
Before disclosing any new information to your insurance company, it is a good idea to check your policy.
Some group disability insurance policies include language that says you can only get paid LTD benefits for the medical condition(s) which were the cause of your disability when you stopped working. In that case, a newly diagnosed medical condition will not help your disability claim.
The attorneys at Dabdoub Law Firm specialize in disability insurance claims, appeals and lawsuits. We work closely with our clients to determine the best course when new medical conditions arise.
It is important to keep in mind, though, that you will not get additional benefits just because you have additional medical conditions. Your benefit amount remains the same regardless of how many conditions you suffer from.
If you are unsure what to do before or during your disability claim, contact the experienced attorneys at Daboud Law Firm. We can help you with your disability claim at any stage.
