Life Insurance Denial

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016 | Uncategorized | No Comments

Has a life insurance company denied your claim? The last thing that you need in a time when a loved one has passed away is a hassle from an insurance company. There are always unexpected bills and, with all of the other things that you have going on and matters you have to handle now, how are you going to work and do it all? Life insurance is supposed to help you through.

But the first think that a life insurance company will do upon the filing of a claim is look to see if there is an exclusion that applies to the claim. Basically, they are looking for a way NOT to pay a claim. They NEVER look for a way to pay a claim.

Now, the adjuster is human – they have family just like you and me. They live in a community, go to church, go to the store, have kids etc… – so it sounds like you can trust these folks. If they were not working for an insurance company as an adjuster, that would be true. However, THEY HAVE A JOB TO DO AND IT IS NOT TO HELP YOU. They make their living determining whether to pay claims or not – and they are looking as hard as they can for any facts supporting a denial.

So keep that in mind when you are faced with making a life insurance claim. Also, let us know if we can help you with the process. We have negotiated and dealt with insurance companies for years and we would be happy to assist you with the claim.
