Unemployment Disability Insurance: Coverage in 4 Easy Steps

Unemployment Disability Insurance provides supplemental income to individuals that are prevented from working due to an injury or illness. The income replacement from unemployment disability insurance is to ensure that an individual can maintain his or her standard of living and pay their financial obligations. 

Steps Required to Receive Unemployment Disability Insurance 

To receive unemployment disability insurance, an individual will be required to do most of the leg work and carry some responsibility. There are certain requirements that must be met prior to and while receiving benefits.  There are basically four easy steps to ensure coverage:

  • produce proper medical documentation of the disability
  • produce evidence of existing treatments
  • proof of ongoing treatment while receiving benefits
  • timely submission of claim forms
Some providers may require an independent medical assessment to determine an individual’s eligibility to receive benefits. However, in most cases, the validation period is normally a short period of time and payments usually arrive within two weeks. If you strictly follow the four easy steps above you can recover worry free without concern for termination or a reduction of your benefits.
