Long Term Disability Services
In addition to handling all stages of Social Security disability claims for individual claimants, we offer services specifically tailored to the needs of private Long Term Disability insurance carriers.
Recovery of Overpayments
We offer our clients who have been receiving benefits from a long term disability insurance carrier the optional service of helping them with repaying any overpayment of LTD benefits resulting from the award of Social Security disability benefits. When a claimant is receiving long term disability insurance they are often required to apply for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. Depending on the particular contract for LTD benefits ,when awarded benefits, claimants are then likely required to repay back benefits to the insurance carrier. We are very experienced with clients who receive private long term benefits and we thoroughly advise our clients about how this process works in our very first consultation so that there are no surprises once the Social Security disability claim is approved. If a notification of a long term disabilty overpayment is received from an insurance carrier, our clients can choose our optional repayment service and we will then act as their agent to verify the amount of the overpayment and to handle the transfer of funds to the insurance carrier. This insures that the repayment to the insurance company goes smoothly for both the claimant and the insurance company. There is no additional fee for this service.
LTD Onsite File Review
We can assist LTD carriers in evaluating their long term disability claims by review of claim files by one of our attorneys on the carrier's premises prior to referral or through electronic review of files on a frequent basis. We review cases in bulk or on a case-by-case basis and provide a timely response as to whether the claimant has a viable case. We also can provide tailored reports on the cases referred. This is also convenient for the claimant as they do not have to provide ongoing documentation to their insurance company case worker as to their Social Security application status.
