I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

The answer here is going to depend on the insurance contract. They may require insured individuals to file a claim within a certain amount of time after becoming disabled.

If the contract doesn't say, he should have 5 years to put in a claim, since that's the general statute of limitations on written agreements. But the document itself may say otherwise. He should be able to get a copy of the documentation from the insurance company or his former HR Department.
