  • 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   *****

Skipp (California)

I am writing to highly recommend Greg Dell & The Law Offices of Dell & Schaefer as disability attorneys. Greg has handled my permanent disability case for over ten years. Along the way, disputes with the insurance Co. were quickly handled by Greg where, in each instance, we always prevailed. Regardless of the pressure to discontinue benefits, Greg assured my uninterrupted flow of benefit checks.

Years ago I had met an attorney from The Law Offices of Dell & Schaefer at a dental meeting and the message (& Biz card) I took away that day became extremely valuable when, much later, I suffered a career-ending injury and had to file for permanent disability benefits.

Even before filing a disability claim, the insured person needs the protection, advice, and power of a good disability attorney. There are potential hidden traps throughout & especially early the claim process. Disability insurance Co.’s look to circumvent their duty to pay. They don’t just write the checks! Dealing with my claim, I often felt my Insurance Co. was taking advantage of me.

To successfully claim & receive continuing benefits, it was clear early on that I needed legal representation. I called Dell & Schaefer, spoke with Greg Dell, and immediately understood that this attorney knew exactly what I was going through & that he had the experience and power to represent me, to stand up to the insurance Co., & to assure my uninterrupted benefits. As soon as Greg took over my case, all correspondence from the insurance Co. went straight to him for his handling. No longer were those insurance Co. letters being delivered to where I live, where they would result in distraction & uncertainties in my home.

It’s been a great relief to my family & me to have Greg Dell and the staff at the Law Offices of Dell & Schaefer, on the job, responding, on my behalf, to the insurance Co.’s relentless pressure to reduce or discontinue my benefits. Greg Dell deserves and receives my highest possible recommendation as a disability attorney.
