When Does a Person Qualify for Long-Term Disability in Illinois?

Written by Ankin Law Office

What would happen if you were suddenly unable to work as a result of an accident or injury? Would you be able to pay your bills? Would you know what to do in order to get the help you need?

The Chicago disability lawyers at Ankin Law Office, LLC understand just how scary and confusing it can be if you are suddenly unable to work as a result of an accident or injury. We work with clients to help them obtain full and fair compensation, including workers’ compensation benefits, Social Security benefits, long-term disability benefits, and personal injury damages.

Long-term disability insurance is often an employment benefit provided by employers, in which employees are entitled benefits equal to a percentage of their salary if they become disabled and cannot work. Unlike federal disability programs like Social Security disability (SSDI) or Supplement Security Income (SSI), an employer’s insurance company will make a determination of whether an employee is eligible for long-term disability benefits. Because insurance companies are for-profit companies, they are often reluctant to approve claims or may seek to pay less than an employee is owed.

The Illinois long-term disability attorneys at Ankin Law Office focus on helping injured and disabled workers recover the maximum compensation to which they are entitled. Contact our office at (312) 600-0000 to schedule a free consultation with one of our knowledgeable Chicago disability lawyers to learn more about Illinois long-term disability benefits.
