The Importance of the Administrative Record

New Jersey Long-Term Disability Attorney

The application of your long-term disability claim, along with all of the medical, employment, and vocational evidence that you submit to substantiate your claim, goes into a file kept by your insurance provider that is referred to as the administrative record. This file is the complete documentation of your case, to be used for the appeals process and that may eventually end up in Court. 

Whatever decisions are made in your claim, they will be directly linked to the administrative record.  For this reason, it is so important that you provide comprehensive evidence to your insurance carrier in support of your claim.  The evidence should be thorough and complete.

Whether you are submitting information to your carrier for the first time with a new claims application or if your claim has been denied, you need an experienced New Jersey long-term disability lawyer at our firm. We have been successful in providing invaluable assistance to thousands of individuals in their pursuit of disability claims throughout New Jersey and the country.

The administrative record of your claim is extremely important since all decisions will be based on its contents. If you have exhausted the appeals process with your insurance company and you wish to take your case to court, you will probably not be allowed to add any new evidence, no matter how relevant to your claiml. Therefore, the contents of your administrative record will be the determining factor in the outcome of your claim, particularly in a court of law.  Therefore, the administrative record should contain all relavent evidence pertaining to your medical condition and the limitations that are imposed by your illness.   

Our firm can assist you in completing the administrative record and making sure it is accurate.  We wil give you guidance as to what should be submitted to your insurance carrier in support of your claim.  Not only should all of your medical evidence be included in the record, but you should consider obtaining treating source opinions, vocational evidence, and testimonials from your family, peers, and co-workers.  Submitting a comprehensive administrative record can be time consuming, and because of the deadlines involved, it is important to have the guidance of an experienced disability lawyer.
