Social Security Disability Insurance
In many instances, insurance companies will try to deny these benefits to disabled persons who are rightfully entitled to receive long-term disability benefits. To ensure that you are treated fairly by the insurance company, you need aggressive legal representation from an experienced attorney. The attorneys at Frederick & Hagle have extensive experience advocating for individuals in Social Security Disability (SSD) matters and other insurance matters throughout Central Illinois.
Long-Term Disability Vs. Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
Long-term disability benefits are offered through your employer. These are benefits that will cover a percentage of your salary in the event that you become disabled and cannot work. SSDI is a federal insurance program that you can collect from if you have paid enough into the program (and are considered disabled). People who are disabled and cannot work can apply for both long-term disability and SSDI benefits, as well as workers’ compensation benefits.
It is important to remember that insurance companies are quick to deny benefits when they see that an individual has applied on his or her own, so it is important you work with an experienced Champaign long-term disability attorney. We at Frederick & Hagle will help explain:
- What benefits you are entitled to
- How much your benefits will be
- How long your benefits will last
We offer comprehensive legal representation for our clients and take time to explain the legal issues involved in the situation. Knowing that you have an advocate on your side can make this process much easier. Our lawyers are here to help you through every step of the process and stand up aggressively against the insurance company.
