It is not that Social Security Disability or ERISA Short Term and Long Term Disability regulations and/or Insurance policies contain loopholes for the purpose of deliberately denying claims. Rather it is that the regulations and other governing the terms and language regarding which claims meet the requirements are intentionally designed to be fairly restrictive. And there are some legitimate reasons for this. These primarily serve the purpose of distinguishing between claimants who cannot work from those who might think they cannot but really can. If undeserving claims were paid, the insurance plan and/or Social Security fund could run out of money to pay the deserving claimants. Having said that, there are nevertheless some technical rules or exceptions that unfairly work to prohibit deserving claimants from obtaining disability benefits. The lawyers at the Law Office of Paul Dombeck PLLC are familiar with the myriad rules and regulations guiding the process of applying for disability which can be critical to getting a claim approved and/or wondering whether to bring the claim in the first place.
