Depending on what your policy’s states, the duration of benefits you could recover through your policy varies. A lot of policies these days state that your benefits will expire when you reach your retirement age. Some policies actually explain what that is, or they give you some sort of formula and depend on the retirement age for social security disability. Also, if you’re an older claimant in their early 60s, they will sometimes outline what that is for you with a very specific date or formula. For instance, if you’re 62 years old, they may say you only have three years or 36 months of benefits left. Once you’re on benefits, generally insurance companies will check in two or three times a year to make sure you’re still disabled under the policy and do routine checks. They can deny you again there, or they can keep you on benefits until the benefits run out.
