Right time to apply for long term disability insurance
Workers in Indiana who develop a disabling health condition should consider filing for their long term disability (LTD) insurance benefits while they are employed.
Claiming LTD benefits while still working may reduce your chance of being denied deserved benefits. Usually, LTD providers may argue that workers’ benefits are discontinued after resignation. Since disability benefits are computed based on salary, workers may want to file a claim during a time when their income is high. Filing for an LTD claim during employment also prevents workers from having to sign severance packages that unknowingly may sometimes compromise their long term disability benefits in the future.
