SEIU-West helps Member win Disability Income Benefits Claim!

An SEIU-West member from the health care sector was unable to work due to a disability. In June 2017, the disability application for benefits was denied and resulted in no income and benefits from 2017 until 2019. The decision was challenged by the member and they were provided representation and assistance by SEIU-West. 

This November, the claim was won and the member was awarded full back pay!

You might be wondering why this claim took so long to resolve? The answer is, this claim had to go through several levels of appeal. But SEIU-West was by this members side every step of the way and the claim was won at final adjudication. 

SEIU-West works hard to ensure that every member is fairly represented!
