Long-Term Disability Deadlines
Long-Term Disability cases denied during the COVID-19 pandemic were granted extensions for filing an appeal by the Department of Labor. This extension allowed claimants to file an appeal beyond the standard 180 day deadline that most insurance companies provided. Since the public health emergency ended May 11, 2023, it is important that claimants pay close attention to the appeal rights outlined in the decision.
If the deadline is missed, any further appeal or arguments made against the decision will likely be unsuccessful.
The attorneys at the law office of Malyuk McDaniel Kasper LLC recommend that all individuals seek competent legal representation with an attorney that has experience in Long-Term Disability cases to ensure a proper appeal is filed.
Please call the law office of Malyuk McDaniel Kasper LLC immediately if you have received a denial of your LTD benefits. Because time will be limited, it is important to have an attorney act immediately to gather the relevant information that supports your claim for disability.
