Disability Insurance And Severance – Successful Claims Require Strategic Planning

Employees struggling to stay at work and perform their jobs despite illness or injury feel trapped between a rock and a hard place.  If they stop working, they won’t be able to make a claim for disability, as they will no longer be considered an “active employee,” a requirement to be eligible for coverage.  But if they go out on disability, will they be the first ones laid off,  potentially losing other employee benefits?

Frankel & Newfield helps clients navigate these difficult situations, making critical and strategic decisions based on our years of experience in long term disability insurance claims and litigation. We discuss a time frame for pursuing the claim, acknowledging and dealing with the inherent difficulties, and issues of gaining medical support.   Our clients have a clear picture of their options, and can make an informed decision about discussing their disability with their employer, filing a claim, at the same time that they are navigating the severance process. 

Dealing with a disability insurance claim and severance at the same time is serious business, and a misstep could have severe financial repercussions.  If this is your situation, speak with one of the partners to learn how we can help you. Call our office at 1-877-LTD-CLAIM (877-583-2524) today.
