Trustmark Disability Insurance Claims

What happens when the disability insurance that you were counting on is denied by Trustmark?

Disability policyholders whose insurance premiums come out of their paychecks are stunned when, after years of paying for coverage, the disability insurance company turns around and denies their claim. They often feel like the rug has been pulled out from under their feet, and they are left wondering why the company that promised to do so much is instead leaving them out in the cold.

It’s a frightening feeling. At Frankel & Newfield, we hear these stories on a daily basis. People who are coping with the stress of a disability illness or the results of an injury and would like nothing more than to return to their regular lives, are left in a terrible financial position.

For those who have placed their faith in Trustmark, it can be a surprise.

Trademark is a mutual holding company that offers a wide range of employee benefits to employees. The company positions itself as selling “voluntary” benefit products, that is, people who seek to increase their coverage options for disability and other insurance products.

The idea that you’d apply for additional disability insurance benefits only to be turned down for the creates even more frustration and anxiety for disability claimants.

How Frankel & Newfield Can Help with a Trustmark Disability Claim

First of all, note the date of correspondence from Trustmark (or any other insurance company involving a denial of disability benefits). Your policy includes provisions with strict time limits. If you receive a notification by mail and don’t want to deal with it, hand it to a trusted family member or call our office at 877-583-2524 for a free consultation. Do not just set the letter aside and hope that the problem will somehow be resolved. It won’t.

The last thing someone facing a health crisis wants to deal with is a battle with their disability insurance company. Frankel & Newfield represents many claimants who hand their entire disability matter over to us. We are able to relieve them of the burden of dealing with clerks and claims managers who seem to want only to make their claim so difficult that claimants give up.

This is nothing for the disability insurance company to lose by denying your claim. Even if your battle to retain your coverage goes to court, there are no damages that can be asserted against the insurance company. Their only cost will be the legal fees of their in-house counsel. You, on the other hand, have everything to lose.

We have seen disability insurance companies, including Trustmark, try to wear down and wait out claimants. The strategy seems to be to push back and hope that if you are sick enough, maybe you’ll just give up. That’s when we come in. When we get on the phone with the insurance company, they know that you haven’t given up, you’ve just entrusted your disability claim to an experienced law firm that knows how to handle these situations.

We also work with claimants who have tried and failed to apply for benefits from Trustmark, been denied, filed a claim and then tried to tackle the claim on their own. This is a big company with many resources, and the appeals process is complex. If you fall into this category, we urge you to call our office and speak with a partner about your situation. We can help – but you have to make the call. Contact us at 877-583-2524 for a free consultation about your Trustmark disability claim.
