Documents needed for appealing a denied long-term disability claim

  • Detailed medical records
  • Testimony provided by medical experts
  • Detailed, written affirmation of claimant’s condition from family members or co-workers
  • Claimant’s detailed work description and how their disability affected their ability to continue working
