New York Life Disability Claims
Call Our Disability Insurance Lawyers
Founded back in 1845, New York Life Insurance Company is the third largest insurance company in the country today. Holding about $570 billion assets under its management, New York Life is responsible for countless insurance policies, including long term disability insurance policies sold to employers and individuals alike. New York Life is a mutual insurance company, which means it is technically owned by its policyholders because there are no third party shareholders who can claim a stake in the company.
It touts this mutual approach to insurance company ownership as a means to assure policyholders that they will always be treated fairly, but, just like many other major insurance companies, the best interests of the company are often put before the needs of the individual policyholder. At Dabdoub Law Firm, our long term disability benefits attorneys have gone up against New York Life before on behalf of our clients. We are familiar with their methods, including how the company administers disability claims after they are filed.
New York Life Acquires CIGNA’s Group Insurance Business
In December 2020, New York Life announced the completion of their acquisition of CIGNA’s group life, accident, and disability business. Rebranding the former CIGNA solutions under the New York Life Group Benefits Solutions label, New York Life’s acquisition impacts millions of customers. New York Life is the largest mutual insurance provider in the country, insuring millions of people for disability insurance benefits. If you have a disability insurance claim with NYL, Dabdoub Law Firm is here to help protect your rights if they wrongfully deny or terminate your benefits.
Disability Insurance Policies Sold by New York Life
As an insurance company of such size and history, New York Life sells multiple types of disability insurance policies. The company sells group policies to employers, who provide that coverage to eligible employees.
You may also opt to purchase an individual insurance plan from New York Life yourself. This is often the choice for independent contractors, entrepreneurs, small business owners, and the self-employed. Your individual policy is probably an “own occupation” disability insurance policy, meaning it provides coverage if you cannot safely or reasonably continue working in your own occupation. For example, if you are a dentist but can no longer use dental instruments due to rheumatoid arthritis, then your own occupation disability insurance should trigger and provide you with deserved benefits. This is true even if you can work in some other occupation.
Fighting for Your Deserved Disability Insurance Benefits
New York Life may try to do undervalue or deny your claim without due reasons. This is simply a reality of dealing with insurance companies that our long term disability attorneys of Dabdoub Law Firm have seen again and again.
New York Life may try to deny your benefits by saying:
- Your medical condition is not adequately disabling.
- You are fit for different types of work, despite what your own doctor says.
- You did not give ample information about your disability when filing your claim.
We are ready and waiting to represent and assist you from the very start of your New York Life disability insurance claim to its conclusion, even if that means things have to go up to a federal court of appeals.
