Disability Insurance Through Your Employer
Many people in Virginia have disability claims with insurance companies. This is because many employers in Virginia offer employees group disability insurance coverage. These group disability policies are usually governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA).
This law is very complex and confusing. It is important you hire an attorney who understands ERISA. We bring with us over many years of experience handling ERISA claims.
Generally, these disability policies have two definitions of disability. For the first 24 months, disability means you are unable to perform the duties of your own occupation. After that, the definition of disability changes to mean you cannot work in any occupation. Disability insurance companies frequently terminate disability benefits based on this change in the definition of disability.
Individual Disability Insurance in Virginia
Many people living in Virginia also purchase their own disability insurance. These are known as individual disability insurance policies or, sometime, own occupation disability policies. Unlike group disability policies, these disability insurance policies might only define disability as being unable to perform in your own occupation. Generally speaking, these disability insurance policies are more favorable than group disability policies, but there are other ways insurance companies try to deny valid disability claims.
