Yes, if you are receiving Social Security disability payments.
Fibromyalgia can be or become a very serious issue over time, specially if not properly treated. It is a condition that insurance companies do not want to insure on an individ…ual basis. If you have fibromyalgia, try to obtain income protection through work as it will be the best option for you to obtain coverage. Group Disability insurance can be offered on a guaranteed standard issue basis, meaning that anyone can get it. However, there are certain guidelines that must be met.
The simple answer is Yes. A person can certainly qualify to receive Long Term Disability benefits because of having cancer. However, it is not the fact that he/she has cancer …that qualifies him/her for benefits. In order to qualify for Long Term Disability benefits, a person must satisfy the requirements set forth by their Group or individual policy - which can be found by reviewing the definition of total disability along with the guidelines for Residual disability. Without getting too far into detail, the requirement to receive Disability benefits from a group or individually owned policy will be worded something like: To be considered totally disabled you must be unable to perform the material and substantial duties of your occupation (or "any" occupation, depending on your contract). Thus explaining that it is not necessarily Cancer that enables a person to receive Long Term Disability benefits, but rather the inability to perform his/her occupational duties that can be caused by cancer. In order to qualify for Residual benefits (benefits for partial disability), the debilitating injury or illness must cause a loss of income greater than 15-25%, depending on the policy.
Incarceration? Like in jail? No, its not a disability to be in jail be a long time.
There is no fixed answer to this question, because it depends uponthe terms of the contract. That is, disability insurance benefits,assuming they are not government-provided b…enefits such as SocialSecurity Disability, are paid pursuant to a contract (insurancepolicy) between an insurer and an insured. If you are a covered under a group long-term disability policy (forexample, provided through your employer), the Human RelationsDepartment will be able to provide you with the specifics of theduration of benefits. If you have an individual policy (one that you have paid for), youwould have selected the duration of benefits at the time thatapplication for the policy was made. Assuming that the policy wasissued by the insurance company upon the terms requested, thatduration of benefits would apply. Another factor to consider is that disability benefits willcontinue under the policy for as long as you are determined to bedisabled per the policy definition of "disabled". That is, somepolicies are written as "own occupation" policies, which means thatgenerally, you will continue to be considered disabled for as longas you are unable to perform the material duties of the job thatyou held at the onset of your disability. Other policies arewritten as "any occupation" policies. These generally require thatyou be unable to perform any sort of occupation in order to collectbenefits. Finally, keep in mind that all policies will have a finite end timefor the payment of benefits. This may be expressed in terms of anage (for example, 65), or in the number of years that benefits arepaid. Also, most disability policies have an elimination period onthe front end. This is generally similar to a deductible (in aproperty and casualty policy) but is measured in terms of time thathas to pass before benefits begin to be payable.
