Do I need a lawyer to assist me with completing the various forms in order to receive short term or long term disability benefits? by Patricia Santucci
No. You do not need a lawyer to complete the various forms required to receive short or long term disability benefits. However, a lawyer may be of assistance in helping you to complete the forms and more accurately describe your physical and psychological restrictions and limitations. In most cases, an insurance company has only these forms available to it when deciding on whether or not to pay you disability benefits. If the forms are not completed properly, your benefits may be delayed or even denied. For assistance, contact us. We are happy to help. (9)
