Long Term Disability Carriers Use Surveillance to Sabotage Your Case

Long Term Disability carriers routinely use video surveillance. Why? They use the surveillance to document what you do during your day, including the activities of daily living, such as running errands, filling up your gas tank, going to the bank.

While this minimal activity doesn’t necessarily establish that you are capable of working, what it can be used for is to sabotage your case. How so?

The Long Term Disability carrier has you complete activities of daily living in which you are to accurately document what you are physically capable of doing. If in that form, or in a statement, you tell the Long Term Disability insurance company that you “always use a cane,” or that you always “limp,” and the surveillance shows you walking without a cane or without a limp, you are in trouble!

While walking without a cane or without a limp doesn’t mean that you can work, it does destroy your credibility.

In the book Robbed of Your Peace of Mind it talks about how to complete Activity of Daily Living forms, I emphasize that you should “never use the word never.” Never use the word “always.” Tell the truth, you have good days and bad days, and there are days that you can do more. Activity level is dependent upon your pain and your medication.

Don’t be the star in a surveillance horror show. Don’t let the pictures of what you are doing in your daily routine contradict what you said to the Long Term Disability carrier and your doctors.
