    Answered . You didn't say whether you were seeking long termim disability payments from an insruance policy or from Social Security. If it is from your own disability policy, have a lawyer review the policy to detrermine what to do to file and support a claim. If it is for Social Security, there are attorneys who specialize in this. You can find one by searching Avvo or Google--Socail Security Attorney
