Can I still do volunteer work and qualify for LTD? by Patricia Santucci
Yes, you can do unpaid volunteer work and qualify for LTD benefits. However, you must be careful that doing so does not provide evidence that you are not actually “disabled” as defined in your insurance policy. It is also important to tell the truth if asked about your volunteer work, whether in a statement, at an Examination for Discovery or at a medical appointment, as it will affect your credibility if your insurance company finds out that you are volunteering your time, but not disclosing it to them. If your insurance company cuts you off LTD benefits due to your volunteer work, contact Santucci Personal Injury Law to help you get your benefits reinstated. (46)
