At the beginning of February, my insurance company (in order to avoid court) came to an agreement with my lawyer and I to re-instate my monthly LTD payment effective for the month of March (actually, to start it, as I hadn’t gotten it to begin with), and arrange a retroactive lump sum payment for when I should have started receiving benefits, up until the end of February.
I signed the final release forms for the retro payment last week, and my lawyer is waiting for a filed copy of the discontinuance from the courthouse to give the originals to the Defense and release the retro funds to me. Hurry up and wait, as per usual!
However, I still haven’t received my first regular monthly payment which was supposed to start this month, and there are only 2 business days left. If the insurance company doesn’t pay this, but the case is already closed, I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do. Does anyone have experience with this? I’m not going to call the insurance co directly until all the t’s are crossed and i’s are dotted from my case, but my lawyer is in court and I don’t want to bug him with what is a minor question in the grand scheme of things either.
I just want to pay my darn bills!
