I have a disability insurance claim. What must I do?

Disability insurance companies use varying language in their policies, but generally a claimant must establish that:

  • claimant has a medical condition (illness or injury), which is certified to by a competent medical provider;
  • claimant is unable to perform their substantial and/or material occupational duties a result of this condition.
  • claimant must meet both of these criteria before being eligible for benefits.
