Disability Appeal Won for Client Suffering from Lupus
A client retained our services to appeal termination from Long Term Disability (LTD) benefits. Basis of disability is lupus. Benefits were terminated because the client’s treating doctor reported that her condition had stabilized and also based on the client’s ability to travel to visit her sick parent and to move out of the country because of her husband’s employment. The client had not gotten well enough to resume working. Benefits were reinstated after supporting statements and medical records were submitted by the current treating physician out of the country as well as additional information from her prior treating physician in the U.S.
