What You Need to Know About Long Term Disability Denials

The first thing you need to determine is whether or not your disability insurance is covered by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). The overwhelming majority of employer sponsored insurance plans are regulated by ERISA. Alternatively, if you bought long term disability insurance on the individual marketplace, it is likely governed by California state law. 

The type of disability plan you have will impact how long you have to appeal an adverse decision. Under an ERISA plan, you have 180 days to file a long term disability appeal. Under a non-ERISA plan, you typically, but not always, have less time. In either case, your initial disability appeal will likely be an administrative appeal. This means you have to appeal directly to the insurance company. During this stage of the process, you must submit all relevant supplemental evidence―including medical records and vocational records.
