Their tactics are commonplace within the disability insurance sector,, they pose substantial problems for individuals, affecting their financial stability.

You might wonder why insurance companies contest long-term disability claims in Oklahoma? For disability insurance companies, the costs of a disability insurance claim are far more than any one-time claim for a homeowner or someone filing a claim for damage to their car. The numbers tell the entire story – if a claim is supposed to pay the claimant $5,000 a month, multiply that by millions of claims. It costs a lot to pay benefits – and it costs far less to deny long term disability benefits.

The Importance of an ERISA Appeals Lawyer in Oklahoma

For Oklahoma residents dealing with long-term disability claims, particularly those with group policies from their employer, the fight to get benefits is more complicated than for people with private or individual long term disability insurance policies.
