Important Steps In Claim Preparation
Claim preparation is often the most important phase of the disability claim process. We help with these important factors:
- Review: Every disability plan defines disability in a particular way. It is important to obtain a copy of your disability plan, review it and prepare a claim that integrates the definition of disability with your symptoms.
- Proof: If you believe that the definition of disability encompasses your illness or medical condition, you must provide proof of your medical condition and support your claim with evidence demonstrating how the condition prohibits you from performing the material duties of your job.
- Support: You must collect data that show the extent of your symptoms and how they impact your ability to work. Starting a journal of your medical visits, symptoms and other information can help. In addition to collecting data, your doctor may also need to write a letter describing your condition and explaining how it impacts your ability to work.
