Attorneys Gregory Dell and Rachel Alters discuss the occupation of a realtor and provide tips to win your disability benefits.
Insurance companies will often overlook all the job duties you perform as a realtor which can change on a daily basis. You may work in an office one day, make phone calls, and type on a computer, and the next day may be on-site, putting up signs, staging a home, and performing more physically demanding tasks. It is crucial that you explain all of your work duties to your physician and why your physical or psychological condition disables you from working as a realtor. Having regular visits with your physician to document treatment and your limitations is essential, whether you are planning to file a disability claim, already receiving disability benefits, or if your claim has been denied.
