Do You Know The Job Requirements To Be A Lincoln Financial Disability Claim Specialist?

As a disability lawyer that has handled thousands of disability insurance claims I often wonder about the qualifications and experience of the disability company employee that is making the decision to approve or deny my client’s claim. During our routine activities of watching The Lincoln Financial Group, I came across an internet job posting for an “Associate LTD Benefit Specialist” at Lincoln Financial in Atlanta, Georgia.The qualifications and requirements for the Lincoln benefit Specialist position are also listed at the end of this article.

Non-Physical Aspects of a Job Are Usually Ignored by Most Disability Insurance Companies

In reviewing the qualifications necessary to be a Lincoln Financial LTD Benefit Specialist it is important to pay close attention to the non-physical aspects of the job such as “regular and predictable attendance“, “strict attention to detail“, and”problem solve“.

While the job as a Disability Benefits Analyst would be classified as “sedentary” by the Department of Labor standards, the job description does not state that you can perform the job so long as you can lift up to 10 pounds and sit for at least 6 hours a day. The job obviously requires the ability to think clearly and work without limitations. How could a person that is experiencing pain and discomfort possibly perform their job on a daily basis and commit to a daily schedule? Yet, in most Lincoln Financial denials of claimants with a sedentary occupation, it is rare that Lincoln will consider the non-physical aspects of a job.

Unfortunately, Lincoln Financial Benefit Specialists often fail to realize that it is often the pain and inability to focus that is limiting the claimant and not the physical aspects of their job. There is no test in the world that can verify a person’s level of pain and unfortunately disability insurance companies take advantage of this fact of life.

The point of this article is that in order to win your disability benefits, it is imperative that you make the disability insurance company understand why you cannot perform your job or any possible job as result of your disability.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Craig S. (Texas)

I have been extremely impressed with the Law Firm of Dell & Schaefer.

I submitted a form online and was contacted immediately by Mr. Jay Symonds. I explained my disability and the issues I was experiencing with my Long Term Disability Insurance and Mr. Symonds immediately confirmed why Dell & Schaefer was the perfect choice for me.
I explained my situation and what I had experienced with LTD and Mr. Symonds immediately shared with me what he could do for me and for the first time in months, I felt at ease with what I was going through.

Mr. Symonds immediately contacted the insurance company and was able to achieve in 1 day what I hadn’t been able to achieve in Months!

To say that Mr. Symonds was my guardian angel would be an understatement. His knowledge and expertise enabled me to focus on the treatment that I needed.

His staff was always very friendly and my questions were always answered in a timely manner. Throughout this journey, Mr. Symonds and his staff have become like family to me with their support and compassion. Mr. Symonds and Sonia Nogueira have shown empathy, respect and concern for my medical condition.

It was refreshing to see my team of legal experts take immediate action when the insurance company continued to try and bypass the process. I could not have found a better team to represent me and I will always be thankful for their knowledge and expertise.
