Get the Short-Term Disability Benefits You Need

The initiation of a short-term disability claim typically arises from situations such as acute medical conditions, recovery from surgery, or injuries that require a limited time away from work. However, insurance companies may deny short-term disability claims for various reasons. 

These can include insufficient medical evidence, discrepancies in the reported condition versus observed capabilities, or even administrative issues like incomplete claim forms or missed deadlines. Sometimes, the interpretation of what constitutes a ‘disability’ can also lead to disputes between the claimant and the insurance company.
