Disability Insurance Claims in Jacksonville
If you hold regular employment in Jacksonville, you are probably getting your disability insurance coverage from your employer. In Jacksonville, some of the largest employers are related to the government, such as the Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Duval County Public Schools, and Naval Station Mayport, as well as miscellaneous employment from the City of Jacksonville. Even if the government controls your employment, you might be getting some sort of long term disability insurance coverage.
Who is providing your insurance, though? One of the major insurance companies in the country is likely responsible. UNUM, CIGNA or LINA, Prudential, or Hartford, for example, could be the company that is selling your employer an insurance policy. Group policies from companies like these are generally governed by ERISA, which is a federal statute. ERISA applies to group disability insurance offered by a private employer. Government employees with disability insurance claims are exempt from ERISA and Florida disability law applies instead.
Do you work as a doctor, lawyer, business owner, or another independent entrepreneur? Your disability insurance policy may be provided through an individual policy you have to purchase on your own. Companies like MetLife, MassMutual, UNUM, and AXA Equitable tend to offer such individual policies.
Any lawsuits regarding long term disability insurance in Jacksonville will likely need to be filed with the United States District Court Middle District of Florida Bryan Simpson United States Courthouse.
