Absolutely appeal! I wonder why BP's have such a hard time. I pay out of my own pocket for short and long term disability through my employer and they have a clause stating if you are disabled due to anxiety, depression or bipolar, the plan will only pay for 2 years. That does not seem right but anywho.................
Don't give up Red.
Red Lighting- Good that you have an attorney! Realize just about all "Mental health" disorders are denied the first time-! Do NOT "give up"-! That's what they want you to do! Their thinking is..."Well--IF this person REALLY is disabled--they can not work...and WILL appeal!
Your atty will do all the weork...& get 25% of your retroactive pay! Realize the odds are you WILL WIN!
Hang in there-! There is a "LIGHT at the end of the tunnel!" Stay well & have faith- Robert
Please read my post under the "Disability" topic.
Good Luck! Don't give up!
