In short, it is possible. There is nothing stopping your insurance company from surveilling you, even after you have been approved for disability insurance benefits. We have seen insurance companies use surveillance or internet searches after approving disability as a way to check in on the claimant. This includes social media posts as well.
It does not happen in every case and there is no way to predict when it will happen, or even if it will. The best way you can prevent this from being an issue, is to avoid doing things you have claimed you cannot do. Although, being disabled it is not likely you are doing much for the insurance company to “catch.” That is the reality with most of our clients.
For example, there is nothing wrong with doing tasks such as,
Going to the grocery store
Getting your mail from the mailbox
Driving to pick up prescriptions
Visiting family or friends
It is possible that if your insurance company is doing surveillance on you, they may be looking to deny or terminate your claim. If you feel you are being surveilled, call to speak with one of our disability insurance attorneys today. We have experience handling claims with unhelpful surveillance or even surveillance of the wrong person.
