Long Term Disability / Life /
Accidental Death / ERISA

Our past years of representing insurance companies taught us a thing or two about how they work behind the scenes. Let our experience work for you.

Phoenix Long Term Disability Lawyer

The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) governs disability benefits for employee group benefit plans, as most people receive disability insurance coverage through an employer-sponsored benefit plan. It is important to note that it does not govern private disability policies.

Still, because those applying for long term disability benefits apply via the insurance company, most of these applications are denied each year, warranting the assistance of an experienced long term disability/ERISA attorney to assist with the application and/or appeals process.

After spending years representing insurance companies, we don’t guess. We know their playbook and how they work behind the scenes. Using that knowledge, we’ve developed our own Clear Advantage Process for fighting claims.

Arizona Insurance Law

Keep in mind that long term disability policies are governed by state insurance law. In Arizona, long term disability pays you a portion of your income for a longer period of time than short-term disability. The length of time depends upon your plan and can range from a limited number of years to paying out until you reach a specific age. As in other states, long term disability policies require specific documentation from your doctor which, at a minimum:

  • Explains your condition;
  • Indicates (in detail) why you are unable to perform the functions of any job for which you are reasonably qualified (including an explanation of why you cannot do any other jobs that pay a percentage of what you once earned); and
  • Provides an estimate of how long you will be unable to work.
