Throughout the process of obtaining LTD benefits, it is vital that you are totally honest in order to maintain your credibility. When it comes to “invisible illnesses”, your credibility is extremely important.
Many injuries and illnesses cannot be measured objectively by x-rays, blood work, cat scans or MRIs which is why it is so important for you to maintain your credibility. It will be important throughout the process that we do not exaggerate or show inconsistencies in reporting symptoms.
It is equally important not to minimize your symptoms in public forums, such as social media. Insurance companies are able to go online, look at your social media posts and use these against you during litigation.
Keep in mind that even though you may set your social media privacy settings to be as secure as possible, if the insurance company can prove that these documents are potentially relevant, a court will order that you produce them.
