Long Term Disability Insurance

Long Term Disability Insurance

My employer and I agree it's time for me to stop working and he is actively looking for my replacements. I will be applying for long term disability as soon as I get neurologists physician statement. Anyone have a problem getting private LTD approved?

Right now the neurologist is saying she doesnt agree I can't work and won't fill out the physicians Stmt even though I don't think she knows anything about my job.

Have you filled out the papers for the LTD? Sometimes you have to apply twice. My Brother had to apply twice. They take a long time to approve a case.

My neurologist wants to see if Rytary and pt help. If I could stand long enough to do pt i'm sure it might help. My boss is left wanting / needing to replace me and I am having trouble dealing with stress and high pressure of job but need LTD benefits to afford to quit.
