Disability Policy Advice
Advice on Your Disability Policy
If you are disabled and unable to work, it can be difficult to know what to do. Your employer may have provided long term disability (LTD) insurance or you may have your own private LTD insurance. These policies are often difficult to understand and can raise a wide range of questions:
- What is covered under my policy?
- Does my disability qualify me for coverage?
- When and how do I make my claim?
- What do I do if my claim is denied?
At the law firm of Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD, our attorneys can answer these questions for you and help you obtain the coverage you need.
