Can I receive long term disability for Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease?
Yes, you can receive long term disability (“LTD”) benefits for Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease (“EOAD”). If you have been diagnosed with EOAD and have disability insurance through your employer or a privately purchased policy, you may qualify for LTD benefits. However, the process of pursuing LTD benefits for EOAD can be incredibly challenging.
It is essential to first review your insurance policy to understand the terms, conditions, and definitions of disability in your policy. Each policy is unique, and comprehending your coverage is a vital first step. To get your claim approved, your insurer will require substantial evidence documenting your diagnosis, progression of symptoms, and proof that your EOAD prevents you from working.
