Add Comment Question: I've been on disability for breast cancer for approximately 18 months. I attempted a gradual return to work but was unable to continue due to anxiety and lingering effects from chemo and radiation. My LTD insurer has discontinued my benefits. I am currently in the appeal process. My employer says this is an unapproved leave and are going to discontinue paying my medical benefits. Are they entitled to do this? Answer: No this should not be happening and your LTD should be putting you back on benefits. Please call or email me ASAP at my contact info below and we can discuss your situation and options (at no cost).
