Why Do Insurance Companies Deny Claims?

Despite paying into long term disability insurance through your employer, your insurance company will likely try to deny your long term disability claim. As described by Associate Lawyer Kirk Sloane, '[they] don't really want to pay you, didn't really want to pay you, and are always looking for a reason to stop paying you."

Disability denials are especially common when claims are based on chronic pain or mental health issues. Insurance companies have an appetite for details - they want to know exactly what your limitations are and what you can't do - and they will keep asking even when your doctor stands behind you being off work.
