Did Your Insurance Company Unfairly Terminate Your Long Term Disability Benefits?
Most disability insurance companies will do whatever they can to avoid paying out your benefits. Even if your short-term disability and long-term disability claims were initially approved, that does not mean you are safe from termination later on.
Some of the most common reasons for disability termination include:
- Your policy’s definition of disability changed
- Policy limitations applied to your claim
- Your condition changed or improved
- Surveillance damaged your credibility
- You forgot to complete a form or provide an update
Unfortunately, most claimants do not understand these common causes of disability termination or how know to fight back. Our lawyers have handled termination and recission appeals for decades and are here to help. In How to Appeal a Long-Term Disability Termination, we outline everything you need to know.
