Workplace Disability Plans
Many companies offer short-term and long-term disability plans that pay benefits in the event that you cannot work because of health reasons.
Short-term plans generally last for six months and will often pay you your full salary. Once the short-term disability plan expires, a long-term disability plan could begin and may continue until you turn 65. Benefits for either program may be denied during the application process or terminated at some point while receiving benefits.
Reasons for a denial can vary but you may appeal within a specified time frame. Most benefits are governed by ERISA (Employee Retirement and Income Security Act), a federal law, which allows 180 days to file an appeal. An appeal will trigger an immediate review of the claim, therefore you should not file the appeal until you supply additional evidence to support your claim.
