You are sick or have been injured and can no longer perform in your occupation. Unable to work, you have no current income. You’ve heard that people with long-term disability coverage can receive a portion of their prior salary as long as they are disabled.
The question for you is – how do I know if I have long-term disability coverage?
To find the answer to this question, you can do one of the following:
- Reach out to your employer and human resources to see if you are covered under a long-term disability policy. If your employer offers it as a benefit, you may be covered.
- Check your paystubs to see if premiums for long-term disability coverage have been deducted from your pay. It may say something like “LTD” under the deductions. If so, then it is highly likely that you do have long-term disability coverage.
If you have coverage and are no longer able to work, you should consult with one of our experienced disability lawyers to discuss filing a claim.
