Sun Life

The disability attorneys at Frankel & Newfield have represented many Sun Life disability insurance policyholders whose claims have been denied, delayed and terminated. If your Sun Life disability claim has been denied, or if your claim has been terminated, call Frankel & Newfield at 877-LTD-CLAIM (877-583-2526) to find out how we can help.

A common tactic we have seen with Sun Life claims is to first deny the claim, and then seek to negotiate a settlement that takes advantage of a frightened and disabled person. If anyone has spent any time researching Sun Life disability denials on the web, they know that this is coming, and are better prepared to protect themselves. But if they do not know that this is "business as usual" for Sun Life, they are usually steamrolled and taken advantage of.

Don't be intimidated. Know that this is a tactic used by Sun Life on a regular basis. And don't accept any Sun Life settlement offer unless you have met with an experienced disability insurance attorney who works through the real numbers with you. You may be stunned at the real value of your claim, and then dismayed at the company for providing a low ball offer.

Here are the ways in which we help our clients with Sun Life claims:

  • Pre-claim strategizing to help ensure seamless transition to claim;
  • Claim preparation and claim management;
  • Defending claimants from aggressive claim tactics (including requests for Functional Capacity Evaluation, Independent Medical Exam, Field Visit);
  • Appealing ERISA denied or terminated claims;
  • Negotiating Pre-litigation resolutions of claims;
  • Litigating claims following Exhaustion of Administrative Remedies.

Sun Life uses another tactic: time. If your disability policy is part of your benefits from work, it is known as an ERISA policy subject to extremely strict time limitations. Once you receive notice of Sun Life's denial of claim, the clock starts ticking. Don't delay. Immediately contact an experience disability insurance lawyer who can help you prepare your appeal so that you do not miss the deadline. Once the deadline is missed, you have lost your right to fight back.
