How Do I Get The Disability Insurance Benefits I Deserve for Anxiety?
Anxiety can interfere not only with your daily activities but with your ability to work. Anxiety symptoms can damage and even destroy professional relationships and result in poor work performance.
If you no longer can work or your doctor has told you to apply for disability before you apply for benefits, you should:
– Obtain a copy of your disability policy. See how it defines “disability,” “occupation” and “self-reported conditions.” You’ll need to understand what you have to prove to get your benefits for anxiety disorder. There can be a mental nervous limitation in your policy that classifies anxiety disorder as a mental disorder, or the policy can be silent on the issue. Find out what your policy says before you apply for benefits.
– Obtain a copy of your medical records. Review them to see if there is an objective basis for your diagnosis, what your records say about your report of symptoms and your restrictions and limitations.
– Obtain a copy of your personnel file to see whether your anxiety has affected your work performance.
– Obtain a copy of your job description. Create your own description of your physical duties with an explanation of how your symptoms impact your ability to do your occupation. Be sure to explain how your symptoms have impacted your work relationships and your ability to get along with others at work.
– Provide your doctor with the occupational description. Ask your doctor to prepare a report that explains the objective basis for your diagnosis, the objective basis of your restrictions and limitations, and the objective reasons you can’t perform some or all of the material and substantial duties of your occupation.
– Prepare a diary that explains your symptoms and the side effects of medication you are taking. Be sure to give examples of how your symptoms interfere with your ability to do things on a daily basis.
– Hire Nancy Cavey to help you file your initial application. The application process is confusing and designed so you and your physician make mistakes that can result in a delay or even a denial of your benefits. Ms. Cavey knows how to prepare and file a winning shock and awe disability application that leaves the carrier little reason to question your claim.
– Hire Nancy Cavey to help you appeal a wrongful denial or termination of your disability benefits. Disability carriers are in the business of collecting premiums and not paying disability benefits for anxiety disorder.
Carriers routinely cut off benefits at 24 months and misapply the mental nervous condition limitation. They’ll use any reason to deny your claim. The odds of getting your benefits on appeal are greater when you are represented by an experienced ERISA/private ID policy disability attorney.
