What has been your experience with going on employer spinsored disability?

What has been your experience with going on employer spinsored disability?

Who makes that decision? Which doctor handles your disability claim? What where the things you experienced that made your doctor rake you out of work? What if you have multiple conditions that make it difficult to work...then do all of your physicians submit paperwork? The stress of these issues while battling so many others is making life very daunting. Any experience you can share would be appreciated!

Same here but when I first tried it was thought I just had fibromyalgia and the court didn’t believe it was really a disease. I retained a lawyer and finally got it due to depression from the RA. Not the RA. This was a long time ago. Hopefully things have changed.

For short-term disability/FMLA, I had my rheumatologist's office complete the employer's paperwork.

I suggest calling your rheumatologist's office and see how they handle it. My rheumatologist's office schedules a separate appointment for paperwork.

It would depend on who you put in charge I see many Doctors so my Primary care Dr is who I use as he keeps up to date on all my other Dr
Every one of my Dr report back to him. But if you are just applying do to RA related problems you can use your RA Dr.
