One quarter of workers will experience a disability before reaching retirement age, disrupting their ability to work and provide for their families. For those who suffer from injury or illness and cannot work, disability insurance can provide an important source of income. There are strict legal requirements governing all aspects of disability insurance, from filing claims and challenging a denial to qualifying for benefits. Dealing with disability insurance can be challenging, given the technical legal and medical issues involved, the requirements of insurance policies, and the possibility of being denied coverage. Fortunately, Findlaw's disability section has information and resources to help answer your disability questions.
