Social workers in the Greater Chicago region have very difficult jobs. Their primary function is to assist individuals and families with solving disagreements and problems that they encounter in daily life.
The sensitive nature of the issues that social workers have to deal with can also take an emotional toll on a social worker’s overall health and well-being.
Social workers who are unable to complete job duties may rely on individual disability benefits, but obtaining these benefits can sometimes be difficult, and the insurance company may attempt to fight back.

The Purpose of Having Long-Term Disability Insurance in Place

Individuals who work as clinical social workers also diagnose and treat a variety of behavioral, emotional, and mental issues that individuals and families suffer. They must meet with clients on a regular basis, which often involves a significant amount of movement and travel. Many workers think that they will rely upon Social Security disability benefits if their injury or illness suddenly prevents them from being able to work at their occupation.

However, that sometimes turns out to be a big gamble. Having private disability insurance coverage in place helps to ensure that you will receive compensation if you are unable to meet the physical demands and limitations of social work. The main reason for having private disability insurance in place as a social worker is so that there is backup coverage in the event you are not eligible to receive Social Security disability benefits under your circumstances.

Chicago social worker disability benefits lawyer Michael Bartolic can help you pursue the disability insurance benefits you deserve. Please reach out today to discover more about how we can assist you throughout the disability benefits claims process. The process of pursuing compensation under a private disability insurance policy begins with filing a claim against that insurance policy. In some instances, insurance companies will accept the claim if they believe that you are unable to work as a social worker due to your illness or injury.

In that case, you can be awarded between 40% and 60% of your annual salary. However, if the insurance company denies your claim, you might be eligible to file an appeal. An experienced Chicago social worker disability benefits lawyer could assist you with gathering the necessary medical documentation to appeal your claim effectively and efficiently in pursuit of the disability benefits that you deserve.
