Can the insurance company terminate my benefits in the future?
Even after your long term disability insurance claim has been approved, the insurance company will be looking for ways to stop making payments. Terminating your benefits can come as a major surprise and leave you in the dark to support yourself, even though you still cannot return to work. In the months and years ahead, the insurance company will continue to require additional medical information from you and your doctors and will make you prove that your eligible for benefits over and over again. They may even hire a private detective to secretly follow you and video you. They will monitor your social media accounts to see if you are as truly disabled as you claim to be. They will require you to talk with them by telephone and answer questions about your daily life. The insurance company may require new medical records, sometimes as frequently as once per month. Of course, this can be exhausting and overwhelming so it is important to retain the services of a long term disability insurance attorney.
