What Is Required In A Denial?

Liner Legal is on a mission to educate our clients and their loved ones about the disability process. Today, disability attorney Andrew November explains what is required in your denial. While it may seem simple, a denial can be a key to appealing and winning the disability benefits that you deserve. If you are being denied short-term disability or long-term disability, the disability warriors at Liner Legal can help you! Andrew says there are a few things that MUST be in your denial, so you have the best chance to fight back!

Here is what is required in your denial:

  1. Denial must be written
  2. Must be a specific reason
  3. Must reference specific plan provisions on which the determination is based
  4. Must include the internal guidelines & protocols that were relied upon

If these items aren’t in your denial, Andrew says it is ILLEGAL. Not only is it your right to have a written denial with these key points, having these four things in your denial gives our attorneys a roadmap of how to win your case, and gives YOU another chance to win the benefits that you deserve.
