Long Term Disability Appeals: What You Need to Know

Did you obtain disability coverage through your employer or your spouse’s employer? If so, your appeal is likely regulated by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). Otherwise, your claim is governed by state law. Regardless, the disability appeals process is governed by very strict deadlines. Miss a deadline and you may miss out on your benefits altogether. With ERISA disability claims, you have 180 days to appeal. With other disability claims, you may have even less time. 

As a general rule, you cannot file a lawsuit after receiving a disability denial letter—at least not immediately. You must first go through the administrative appeals process. This is perhaps the most important—and least understood—part of long term disability appeals. It is imperative that you submit a well-documented, carefully presented administrative appeal to the insurance company. Doing so will dramatically increase your chances of getting the full benefits that you deserve.
