Gathering Your Information for Your Disability Insurance Claim

You will address many important details and procedures during your first meeting with your Philadelphia long term disability lawyer. You should gather any items requested by your lawyer in advance of your meeting.

You will want to bring copies and be prepared to discuss:

  • Disability insurance paperwork: This includes your policy, any letters or correspondence received from your insurance company, and especially any changes in benefits, terminations, or denials from your insurance company. 
  • Medical records and contact information: The insurance company will be routinely requesting medical records and forms completed by your treating physicians as your claim for disability insurance benefits is evaluated. Bring what medical records you are able to bring with you, or at least a list of doctors you are seeing for your condition as well as a list of medications you are taking.
  • Employment paperwork: Your Human Resources department likely has job descriptions on file for your role. This can demonstrate how your disability prevents you from working in your specific medical role.

You also want to be prepared to discuss limitations or restrictions on mental and/or physical activities. Make note of how your disabling condition prevents you from working, as well as other limitations you experience during a typical day. This will help your Philadelphia long term disability insurance lawyer explain your particular need for disability insurance benefits to your insurance company.
