What Are the Most Common Long Term Disability Claims?

According to the U.S. Social Security Administration, the chance of becoming disabled in your lifetime is 1 in 4 for 20 year olds. While most of these disabilities are illness related, 9% of long term disability claims are accident related. Among the most common disability claims for illnesses are cancer, cardiovascular issues, maternity related issues, mental illness, connective tissue disorders, and neurological disorders. For individuals who are unable to continue working because of these conditions, long term disability benefits offer a means of obtaining income until they are able to continue working.
