How Much Information Access is Too Much?

“I filed a disability claim and signed a document that gave the company the right to get information about me, which I thought was fine – until I started getting requests for everything from my personal finances to my transcripts from college. How much information do they need, and how much am I supposed to […]

Yes, You Still Need to Get Disability Insurance

Despite all of the battles that we wage on behalf of clients and their families, we still advise our clients, colleagues and friends to make sure they have disability insurance policies in place.

Five Star AVVO Review for Justin from Disabled Dentist

This is an unsolicited review by a client that makes all of us professionally and personally very proud of the work we do on behalf of our clients.

Leading Senate Democrats Follow California Inquiry; Colorado, Washington and Connecticut Also Looking Into Aetna’s Process of Claims Review

If you’re not already mad as hell about how decisions are made by disability and health insurance companies already, reading the deposition of Dr. Jay Iinuma, a medical director for Aetna Insurance, will certainly send you in that direction. We are linking to this deposition here, because we believe that every person who has an […]

Don’t Let Your Disability Insurer Discount Your Fibromyalgia

Ask anyone with fibromyalgia if the disease is real.

Today, medical science has proven that fibromyalgia is real. Research has proven that fibromyalgia is related to brain activity that worsens the […]
