The services are offered at no additional cost to all long-term disability claimants, disability resource services provides easy access to professionals through a toll-free dedicated phone line 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Brad Gary, vice president and chief marketing officer at Fort Dearborn Life, said: In addition to physical obstacles, those dealing with a long-term disability are often faced with many emotional issues. We recognize their unique needs, and this new program enables us to provide further support by offering direct access to counseling professionals.
