Another day, another court, another LTD insurer gets CFS wrong

We recently discussed the devastating disease chronic fatigue syndrome or CFS and its impact on the ability to work.

Why pay for something (even if your financial contribution toward the premium is small) that you think you are unlikely to need? You may be young and healthy, and maybe you figure you can use Social Security Disability Insurance instead if you cannot work because of illness or an injury.
