Trying again for info.. so I am a bit more than halfway through my 26 weeks of Short Term Disability. The doctor says I may never get out from under lifting restrictions. Since my injury happened off the job (I was honest enough to declare that officially), I understand that I will not return to UPS in any capacity unless given a 100% no restriction note from the doctor.. (according to HRSC) [Had I lied, I could have Temporary Work$ right now, under my restrictions] Anyway, I am trying to find out about the transition to Long Term Disability. If I cannot get out from under the lifting restrictions, UPS policy dictates that I am essentially out of a job. However if my "disability" is only a lifting restriction, would I qualify for LTD? In my mind there is a big difference between a lift restriction and someone who is Disabled. I am curious about experiences here.. I will find some way to word my questions to Aetna, however I don't want to have them pull my eligibility based on something stupid that I may or may not say. Anyone get LTD based on a not-so-disabling event? Thoughts? I know I will most likely need to find other work. However it would be helpful to have the time to do so after the holidays when more business are looking ahead.
