AXA Equitable Disability Claims
Nationwide Representation for Disability Benefits Claimants
AXA Equitable has gone by many names throughout its years, including The Equitable Life Assurance Society of the United States or simply AXA. Founded first in 1859, AXA Equitable is now one of the largest life insurance companies in America, controlling a total of $1.6 trillion in assets as of 2019.
When you have to file for long term disability benefits provided through AXA Equitable, it might be administered through a company hired by AXA Equitable, such as DMS. Our disability insurance lawyers have gone up against AXA Equitable and DMS before and succeeded for our clients. We handle claims form the start, appeal denied claims, and litigate denied claims if necessary.
This law firm was built only to represent disability claimants. As a result, the firm as extensive experience in this area of the law and has gone to battle against every major disability insurance company in the U.S.
What to Include in Your AXA Equitable Disability Claim
Many policies issued by AXA Equitable are what are known as own occupation policies. These occupation specific disability policies allow someone to continue working in some way or some other occupation and still be totally disabled.
It is important to prepare your disability insurance claim as thoroughly as possible. Our attorneys work closely with our clients and their physicians to prepare as much supportive documentation as possible. We create a clear picture of your medical disability, the circumstances that caused it, and why it justifies disability benefits under the insurance policy.
AXA Equitable may try to claim that:
- Your medical condition is not as severe as reported.
- Your medical condition is severe but does not meet disability requirements because you continue to work in some way.
- You have not provided enough information to validate your claim.
The aforementioned tactics are unfortunately common among insurance companies. In too many cases, they try to discourage a claimant from pursuing deserved LTD benefits just by stringing them along. Repeated requests for the same information is one such tactic. Sending someone to an independent medical examination or IME is also a way to deny valid claims. These examinations are not, however, independent as the examining doctor is chosen and paid by AXA Equitable.
If your claim for benefits is denied, or if AXA Equitable is unjustifiably delaying making a decision, give us a call today to speak with an experienced disability insurance attorney.
