Some employers provide what is called long-term disability insurance to their employees. If you or someone you love has become disabled and cannot return to work for the foreseeable future because of a workplace injury, you may be eligible for long-term disability benefits through your employer. Contact the Philadelphia long-term disability lawyers of Lowenthal & Abrams, Injury Attorneys to speak with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney about the details of your case and learn more about your rights and options under the law.
Long-Term Disability Benefits
In most cases, long-term disability benefits are available for workplace injuries that require more than 90 days away from work. The duration of benefit availability and amount payable can vary depending on your employer’s plan, with some common forms of benefits including:
- Payments in the amount of 50-60% of income
- Payments for 2-5 or 5-10 years
- Payments until the individual reaches age 65
Unfortunately, it can be often be difficult to get these benefits, even if your case clearly qualifies. For this reason, it is typically wise to seek a lawyer’s assistance to make sure you receive the benefits to which you are entitled.
