Our law firm was recently contacted by an individual that was receiving long term disability income payments from Prudential. This disability claimant has been on long term disability for approximately 12 months. His disability is the result of a disabling knee condition. His Prudential long term disability policy defines "disability" for the first 24 months as the inability to perform the substantial and material duties of his occupation. After 24 months the definition of disability changes to the inability to perform the material duties of any gainful occupation. Gainful occupation is an occupation that will pay at least 60% of the claimants pre-disability earnings. This is known as the "any occupation" definition.
