COVID-19 AND DISABILITY
If you have a disability insurance policy and have been unable to report to work due to being diagnosed with covid-19, or medical issues that put you in an at-risk group, you may be entitled to disability insurance benefits. The CDC has said some people are at higher risk during the pandemic, including those suffering from asthma, chronic lung disease, diabetes, serious heart conditions, chronic kidney disease on dialysis, severe obesity, immunocompromise, or liver disease, among other medical conditions (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/need-extra-precautions/people-at-higher-risk.html). If you have been unable to return to work or have been terminated from your job, give us a call if you would like us to evaluate whether you are eligible for long-term disability insurance benefits as a result of covid-19 or medical conditions which place you in an at-risk group.
