Can my disability insurance benefits be denied if I am approved for Social Security Disability Benefits?
- SSDI Approval Does Not Mean LTD Disability Insurance Benefits Will Be Paid
Disability Insurance Attorneys Gregory Dell and Cesar Gavidia discuss the misconception that a claimant will be approved for long term disability insurance benefits if social security disability benefits are approved.
In most cases this is a true statement, but we have been seeing a lot of people approved for SSDI benefits and then denied Long Term Disability benefits. This trend is frustrating and inconsistent as it is the disability insurance companies that often make a claimant apply for SSDI benefits.
Approximatley 72% of the people receiving LTD benefits are also approved for social security disability benefits.
