Applying for long term disability insurance benefits is a process that must have a strategic plan. When you have disability policies with multiple disability companies it can be even more challenging.

Rachel also discusses why it is always in a claimant’s best interest to contact a long term disability lawyer before you contact the disability insurance company.
