  • Will COVID-19 lead to a boom in long-term disability claims?

    August 20, 2020

    The world around us is changing by the minute. Nothing stops for a second in these modern times, and life is becoming more hectic day by day. People are slogging day and night at their workplaces and coming back home to work a little bit more. Mothers are balancing their part-time job along with the already difficult task of raising children.

    The rat race that the world has turned into is causing a lot of health problems, both physical and mental, for everyone. People are not satisfied with their lives, and the constant competition in every sphere of life is taking a severe toll on everyone’s mental health.

    As if all this was not enough, now a global pandemic has gripped the world and sent it into a frenzy. There is economic instability everywhere; a deadly virus is on the loose, and people are uncertain about their lives, let alone their futures.

    Global figures state that almost one in every five persons in the world has some kind of mental illness each year. This number can only be expected to increase amidst this fearful situation. Experts have estimated that this number will have a massive spike within the next six months.

    Mental health and COVID–19

     COVID–19 has changed the way the world used to be around us. We have to maintain distance from our friends, our neighborhood shops are closed, we can’t go to our workplaces, or meet our loved ones; for some people, it is the absolute worst, and they have to spend days in a hospital on a ventilator.

    The worst kind of worry, the worry of their finances depleting, is causing some serious issues to people’s physical and mental health. They can be laid off their jobs at any moment while still having to pay off their mortgages and loans, along with their necessary monthly expenses, which is undoubtedly scary to most people.

    Most of the time, the physical identity and worth of a person are related to the job that he does. There is a constant fear nagging him that he could lose his job and his identity. This can already kill the person from inside, though he may be okay on the outside.

    Front line workers such as doctors, nurses, and police officers face and feel the full wrath of this pandemic. The horrific experiences that they will have to bear will cause a mental strain and devastating burden upon them. They may never be the same person again, after the pandemic. Even at present, they may neither be able to do their job properly nor take good care of their families.

    Considering these dreadful effects of this pandemic, it is, but a sad consequence, that the number of long-term disability claims will have a meteoric rise within six months of this pandemic. 

    Are you eligible for disability claims?

    In these times of extreme uncertainty and economic downfall, anxiety, mental stress, trauma, and depression among people is increasing every day. In such situations, it is very common that there will be a spike in the claims for long term and short-term disability cases.

    First of all, employees who have contracted COVID–19 on their job are eligible to file for a short-term disability claim and its corresponding benefit plan. If they do not recover fully, and the symptoms persist, they may also be eligible for filing a long-term disability claim.

    People who have experienced severe trauma and are under mental anxiety and depression due to this global pandemic and cannot work and do their job to their fullest potential can file for both, a long term disability claim or a short term disability claim based on the extent to which they have been affected. If they have been affected in such a way that they cannot work ever again, or even for a very long period, they have an excellent chance of getting a long-term disability claim approved.

    However, it has been seen that getting such claims to be approved has been a difficult task. This is because mental health problems are not as visible as a physical problem like a broken hand. Some insurers and employers often deem these claims as rubbish and do not consider mental health problems to be real illnesses.

    Therefore, a good way to get your claim to be approved is to have a written medical certificate describing your problem from a certified medical health professional, preferably an expert in this field. If there is a treatment plan that you have been undertaking, it offers a good boost to your chances of having a successful disability claim approved.

     Conclusion

     If you think that you have a long term or short-term disability claim, you should not be hesitant in going further with your case. After all, in these testing times, it is quite reasonable to be stressed out and be unable to work. The world is developing a broader outlook, and now mental illnesses are not considered as something that goes away with time or passes as a phase. If you feel that you have been affected, there should not be a moment of uncertainty in your mind to file your claim.

    For putting up a claim, you should hire a skilled and experienced lawyer. For that, you do not need to worry as we have the complete solution to your problems.
