When should I file a claim for long-term disability/ERISA benefits?
Before you stop working, long-term disability/ERISA lawyer Nancy Cavey suggests that you get your long-term disability policy (LTD) out and read that portion of the policy that tells you when you must file a claim. Most policies require that you file your claim for long-term disability/ERISA benefits within a certain period of time after you stop working. Different policies say different things, but we commonly see a 30 day requirement for the timely reporting of your long-term disability claim.
Make sure you don’t miss that crucial deadline!
