  • Loretta, your long-term disability should pay you as long as you meet the definition of disability in your disability policy. Most policies pay to a maximum period of age 65, however, it depends on your policy so you should review it for that information. In most cases you do not have to remain employed in order to continue collecting your disability benefits, as long as when you became disabled you were an active covered employee. However, you should review the terms of your policy carefully in order to determine whether you must remain an active covered employee to continue receiving benefits.

  • How long is your long term disability? Do I still need to be working for the company that offered this insurance to me? Thank you for your time.

  • Stephanie, I suggest you continue pressing them for a concrete answer regarding your payment. Unfortunately, this can occur. If you continue to have difficulties, I suggest you contact our office and speak with one of the attorneys to address your specific situation.

  • Almost a month ago, I filed for short term disability, due to pregnancy. My claim was approved, and I was told that a check had been sent out. I still have not received a payment, I have called, my boss has called, and we have gotten nowhere. The representatives have a different excuse every time we call.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Christina R.


I was referred to Greg by a very well-respected attorney where I lived at the time, and he described Greg as not only one of the top attorneys in his field, but the BEST in the COUNTRY at what he does! After having interviewed other attorneys for my case that I did not quite feel right about, I contacted Greg and it was a very refreshing encounter, to say the least! He was very compassionate in regards to my health situation, and had had experience with other clients in the past who had been in the same industry as I had… and whom he had also very successfully represented. He was strong, confident and extremely intelligent.

His knowledge of the law was unsurpassed, and he had impressive Insight and expertise in dealing with insurance companies. Greg has successfully represented me now for over six years, and I honestly could not have handled the stress involved with working directly with the insurance company – in my fragile condition – without him! He and his highly-professional Staff have taken over my claim so that I can be worry-free and focus totally on my health and wellbeing. Greg is a master at what he does and I have the utmost respect for him. I have entrusted my whole livelihood in his and his capable Staff’s hands, and I feel totally confident in their ability to represent me in the best possible way, as well as to protect my very best interests. Most importantly, Greg has given me peace of mind at a very difficult time in my life. And, he has done it with kindness, compassion and honesty. His positive attitude and wonderful personality also make it a joy to work with Greg. He has been the ultimate blessing in my life since this unfortunate illness, and I sincerely feel so grateful to have found him!
