Why are ERISA Disability Claims Denied?

If you or a family member submitted an ERISA disability claim, only to have it denied, it is imperative that you understand the insurer’s reasoning. In your denial letter, the insurance company is legally required to explain the rejection. With this information, you can take the next steps in the process and get your case to an experienced Redwood City ERISA lawyer who can help you prepare an appeal.

Of course, ERISA disability claims are denied for a wide array of reasons. Sometimes, the insurance company has just cause to reject the claim. In other cases, insurance companies act in bad faith, trying to take advantage of vulnerable California workers. Some of the most common reasons why ERISA disability claims are denied are as follows:

  • The claimant has too much income;
  • Misrepresentations were allegedly made on the disability application;
  • There are disputes over the medical evidence;
  • There is a lack of medical evidence;
  • There is a dispute over the vocational evidence;
  • The applicant made a mistake;
  • The insurance company made a mistake; or
  • The insurance company rejected the claim in bad faith.

Find Out What the Insurance Company Will Not Tell You

If the insurance company still refuses to pay your claim after you file an appeal, you will have the legal right to file an ERISA disability lawsuit. In this lawsuit, the court will only be able to look at the evidence that is already included within your claim file. This means that you need to submit all of your evidence, from medical records to witness testimony directly to the insurance company, before their final decision is made. If you fail to do this, you may lose out on the right to use that evidence in any future ERISA litigation.
