I have been out off work for work related illness since Nov 3, 2008. I have received 10 weeks of TTD total with the last check date ending on Feb 16, 2009. I applied for LTD benefits though my retirement plan. They sent a letter back saying I need to provide proof that I am no longer receiving TTD, as well as MMI date and % of disability. I have not been determined MMI but they have failed to pay TTD. I requested assistance from DOL months ago but have not received a ruling or anything leading me to believe I will receive TTD.
The question is: How would I go about getting the IC to provide proof they are not paying me TTD? I do have an attorney for WC and I sent him an email but I don't know if he can/will help me applying for LTD. They have only given me 30 days to provide proof or they will drop my application so I was wondering if anyone here can tell me what I need to do.
thanks for your help,
