Response from Ms. Franzoi
The length of time for which you are eligible for long term disability benefits depends on the nature of your of illness and the terms of your LTD plan. Most LTD plans have a 24 month maximum for disability related to mental or nervous disorders and benefits to age 65 for other illnesses. If your disability is due to depression, your benefits might be for 24 months only. Check the terms of your plan to find out how long benefits will be paid.
