AXA Equitable pays total disability benefits to an attorney

A former state attorney, responsible for prosecuting and trying criminal cases, hired Dell & Schaefer, PA prior to filing her application for total disability benefits with Equitable Life Assurance Company. We assisted her as she completed the numerous applications for benefits, were present during her interview with an Equitable representative, and helped her to obtain the substantial amounts of information and documents requested by Equitable. Additionally, all communication by Equitable was directed to our firm and we attended Equitable’s interview of her treating physician.

Total Disability Benefits were granted immediately following this client’s waiting period. We continue to represent her in this matter and will monitor her claim until she is able to return to work, either part time or full time and/or is no longer eligible for disability benefits.
