The Policies of Disability Insurance Companies

Disability Insurance Policies And Major Disability Insurance Companies

Throughout our vast experience in the disability insurance practice, our Philadelphia Unum disability lawyers at Edelstein Martin & Nelson, LLP have encountered many of the major players in the disability insurance industry. Many insurance companies attempt to dissuade their insureds from seeking lawyer representation. Insurance companies often try to settle their insureds claims quickly and cheaply before advice of counsel is sought. These insurance companies will try anything to limit their liability from “creative” interpretation of the policy language, and often resort to tactics which amount to out and out bad faith. Some of the most recognizable companies selling disability insurance policies and handling disability claims are:

  • Aetna
  • Aflac
  • Allstate
  • American Family Insurance
  • American Fidelity Assurance
  • Assurant Employee Benefits
  • Chubb Insurance/Lincoln General
  • Cigna Group
  • Colonial Life
  • Disability Management Services, Inc.
  • The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America
  • Hartford Insurance
  • Liberty Mutual
  • Lincoln Financial
  • Mass Mutual Insurance Company
  • MetLife – Metropolitan Life Insurance
  • Mutual of America
  • Mutual of Omaha
  • Northwestern Mutual
  • Penn Mutual Insurance
  • Principal Financial Insurance Group
  • Regence Group
  • Reliance Insurance Company
  • Royal Maccabees Life Insurance Company
  • Standard Insurance Company
  • State Farm Insurance
  • Thrivent Financial for Lutherans
  • UNIFI Companies
  • Unum

UNUM, touts itself as the leader in providing disability income protection, and is quite possibly the largest disability insurance company in the world. UNUM has been harshly condemned for insurance bad faith practices by 23 different state attorney generals’ offices. If you have purchased a disability insurance policy from a major insurance company or a minor player, protect your investment in premiums. Contact disability lawyers of Edelstein Martin & Nelson, LLP for a thorough review of your policy so that you don’t get caught unaware when you need to make a claim.
