Addiction Disability Claim
Many don’t realize that many group long-term disability insurance policies include coverage for a work disability due to drug and or alcohol addiction and dependency. Benefits can be limited for only two years. However, the long-term disability benefit amount is the same as for physical illness disability. This is usually 60% of base income.
Long Term Effects of Addiction
It can be a constant struggle to stay sober. For many, it is not a straight path. It is marked with many attempts to stay sober. These include going to rehabilitation facilities to help get back on track and maximize the chance of lasting sobriety. When this happens, many people stay for months to try and become sober again. A long-term disability claim can help recover the financial costs of going to rehab.
Insurance companies commonly deny an addiction disability claim. They do this by claiming that your addiction is a pre-existing condition. If that doesn’t work, they will impose long waiting periods. However, an experienced complex litigation attorney can help navigate these frustrating tactics. The Michael Brady Lynch Firm has over 20 years helping victims.
