Social Media and Disability Insurance Claims

It is recommended that you stay off social media. Social media is generally not a good idea for your claim. It can only get you in trouble and will not help your case. Often, people might feel well for a day but then the next day they can feel awful and can’t go to work or get out of bed.

The problem is, a social media post can be used against you. Maybe you are feeling well, you take a selfie of yourself dancing in the streets and post it. The next day you can’t get out of bed. The insurance company is going to take that snapshot of you from Facebook when you were dancing and use that against you.

It is just wise not to post anything on social media.
