  • Disabiltiy in Pennsylvania

    I have been out on STD for about six weeks. I know I can be terminated after 12 weeks after FMLA runs out.

    I have been hospitalized with COPD twice in the past 5 months. An I am on Oxygen 24/7. I am also Diabetic with sever Neuropathy and can not walk.

    I have two questions.

    First, my company also has Long Term Disability. How can I go about getting on LTD?

    Also, I have applied for SS Disability. How long does it take to get an answer from the government.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Did you opt for the LTD coverage when it was offered? SSI often take quite a while to my understanding.

    I'm sorry for your situation. A very dear friend had sever neuropathy relative to his diabetes and it was horrendous for him.

        You didn't have to enroll at all? Pretty good deal.

        Contact HR about the way to apply.

            If it's pretty certain that you aren't going to be able to go back to work, you should file as soon as the insurance company lets you. I know with my friend, it took at least 2 months to work its way through and he was able to get his first LTD check.
