Disability Claims

If a claim is for disability benefits, the claims and appeals rules described in this section apply, except as follows: The Claims Administrator will notify the claimant of the Fund's decision within a reasonable period of time but not later than 45 days after receipt of the claim, unless the Claims Administrator notifies the claimant that an extension of 30 days is necessary due to circumstances beyond the Fund's control. This initial 30-day extension may be extended another 30 days if the Claims Administrator determines that an extension is needed due to circumstances beyond the Fund's control and the Claims Administrator notifies the claimant of the extension, including the unresolved issues and any additional information needed.
