COVID 19 and Long COVID 19

If you are suffering from COVID 19 or Long COVID 19, you can apply for long term disability benefits.

Long term disability claims for benefits are designed to cover any health issues that prevent you from fulfilling the day-to-day responsibilities of your job, and COVID 19 is no exception. If the virus, complications from the virus, or long COVID 19 prevent you from working for a significant stretch of time, you can apply for both short term and/or long term disability benefits.

The most common COVID 19 symptoms are fever, cough, tiredness, and loss of taste or smell. Serious symptoms can include difficulty breathing, chest pain, and loss of speech and mobility. Less common symptoms include sore throat, headache, body aches and pains, red or irritated eyes, and diarrhea.

While people with mild COVID 19 symptoms are generally asked to manage their symptoms at home, make sure to call your doctor and keep track of all paperwork – medical documents will be important to the success of a COVID disability claim.

As the pandemic continues, there are increasing numbers of people suffering from long COVID 19. These COVID 19 long-haulers experience symptoms and health issues months after the onset of the virus and even after tests no longer detect its presence in their bodies.

Long COVID 19 symptoms include fatigue, heart palpitations, chest pain, shortness of breath, “brain fog”, sleep disorders, fevers, gastrointestinal symptoms, anxiety, and depression. These symptoms can persist for months and can range from mild to incapacitating.

A global survey conducted in the fall of 2020 shows that nearly a quarter of people suffering from long COVID 19 were unable to work and have gone on disability or taken medical leave. Of these patients, 85.9 % said they had relapses months after their initial infection, often triggered by some kind of mental or physical exertion such as working. We want to ensure that you are getting the benefits you deserve while you recover from long COVID 19. Don’t accept the insurance company’s excuses.

These LTD disability claims are heavily dependent on obtaining the necessary medical evidence in order to prove the condition in a way that the insurance company will accept. Most policies contain time limits that can be difficult to interpret and so as soon as your long term disability claim has been denied, we would encourage you to contact our disability lawyers to discuss your LTD claim to see if we can support you.

We encourage you to contact us to consult about your claim, to see if we can be of assistance to you and your family.
