For Paul MJD

I went to psychiatrist for 8 weeks and he now says that he cannot come up with any logical reason for me not to return to work. UnUm is waiting for his report and new paperwork for Long Term Insurance. I was only receiving 78.00 from UnUm a week and now will have to invest a $40.00 co-pay if they decide to send me to a Psychologist. I have already gotten an extension from state until July 1 and am going through the paperwork with my company to retire July 1 of 2012. I imagine I will now see a Decline letter. I would like to send you a statement of their calculations of what they paid me - seems awfully low. I have an attorney who told me to call him when I get the letter. I don't know if I was treated right, but I can't bear the thought of walking back into that office. Can I still pursue them if there were any miscalculations or wrong doing after retirement?

Turns out I will only loose 150.00 a month for not waiting until May 2013.
You need to now make a choice and you will have to return to work and ride out until your retirement date at work. Since you have no more medical support from your doctor saying you need to stay out of work, I am afraid you most likely have to go back to work and you need to put everything out of your mind except that you only have 3 months or less to retire. You could still pursue them for any miscalculations in benefits and going back to work does not affect that.

From what I understand, state will continue to pay me as long as the doctor has that he does not agree. I have already received approval from state, which is substantial , for a return date of July 5. I won't miss the 80.00. I remember the last time I was out a couple of years back I was out a month or so past my medical.
Thanks,
That is as long as you have one doctor involved who does not agree you can return to work. But if all of the doctors say you should return to work then you have a problem.
