Hello and thank you for entrusting me to answer your question. I am very sorry to hear about your injury and the time you have missed from work.

Long term disaiblity insurance is private insurance, and as such, terms affecting eligibility will vary from policy to policy. What does your specific policy say with regard to eligibility?

I very much look forward to assisting you regarding this matter.
