Can I File a Long Term Disability Claim If I Don’t Have My Original Policy?

The short answer is yes, you can still file for long term disability insurance claims even if you don’t have your original policy. However, you want to locate that policy as soon as possible. If your disability insurance policy is part of your employee benefits package, speak with the HR department and emphasize that you need to see the current insurance policy held by your employer – to which you are a beneficiary. There may have been changes since the employer’s policy was first issued, so you need to be very clear as to what are the claim requirements, and other important issues relating to the claim and the potential benefits.

COURT FINDS AETNA DISABILITY ABUSED ITS DISCRETION IN TERMINATING ERISA CLAIM

A Federal Court in Arkansas has determined that Aetna’s claim handling conduct in addressing a long term disability insurance claimant’s ongoing eligibility for benefits was an abuse of discretion.  Aetna had originally determined that the claimant was eligible for short term disability insurance and paid benefits for that period of time, based upon the claimant’s orthopedic difficulties, including multiple level disc herniations, supported by MRI and numerous surgeries.

Disability insurance law is a complex and highly challenging area of law that requires a thorough understanding of contracts law, insurance law and medicine.
