Social Media Activity Can Hurt Disability Claims
For many people, social media activity is a regular and frequent part of their daily lives. Your online presence includes what you post and upload to your social media accounts. This information about you can have a huge effect on your disability insurance claim.
Social media and online dating are such a huge part of our lives today. It was only a matter of time before insurance companies added trolling social media accounts to their bag of tricks. Disability insurance companies are sneaky and will use whatever tactics they can to try to disprove your disability and not pay your claim.
In today’s digital world, everything you post online can come back to haunt you. That is especially true if you are going through a long term disability insurance claim. Your disability insurance company may search for you on social media and dating websites. They may even go so far as to create a fake profile to connect with you. This allows them to search through your photos and postings to see what kinds of activities you are doing. If they find anything that may show you are participating in an activity that may discredit your disability insurance claim, they will use it against you.
It is important to keep in mind that anything you post may be seen by your disability insurance company. You do not want to put anything on your profile that may hurt your disability claim. Online dating sites and social media are a great way to meet people and stay connected, but be careful of your online presence when going through a disability insurance claim or receiving disability insurance benefits.
