I Got Approved for Disability - Now What Happens?

“I got approved for disability; now what happens?”

That’s one of the first questions new clients have for us. After your disability benefits are approved, it's important to understand that the process doesn't end there. While you may have successfully secured benefits, insurance companies often continue to monitor your case closely. We know how stressful dealing with their constant demands can be. While your goal is to get your health back on track, their long term goal is to take you off claim so they don’t have to pay your disability benefits any further.

While under your insurance company’s “care”, your case manager will contact you often, asking for status updates, wanting further medical proof from your doctors, wanting you to speak to their doctors, and constantly pushing you to return back to work. This pressure can be very overwhelming, but you do not have to handle this on your own. Share is There.

I got approved for disability; now what happens?

It’s too soon to celebrate if you just got approved for disability; now what you’ll face is pressure from your insurance company. The purpose of disability benefits is to give you the time away from work you need to take care of your health. During this time, you have been under the treatment and care of your own doctor, and with them, you have decided on the best course of action.

Despite this, your insurance company will employ many practiced tactics to put pressure on you to return to work and be off claim. The following provides you with a guide of what happens now that you’ve been approved for disability benefits. If you are unsure of what you should do, contact us to discuss your situation.
