Northwestern Mutual

If Northwestern Mutual denied your disability claim, you are not alone. Northwestern Mutual Insurance Company became a Fortune 500 company, with profits exceeding $800 million a year by denying claims.

Insurance companies like Northwestern Mutual routinely deny long-term disability claims by setting a very high standard for the claimant to hit before they qualify under their policies. They will frequently deny first-time claims without good cause knowing that many people will just give up. Often the appeals process is so onerous that those folks who attempt to appeal are denied simply because they couldn’t understand all of the requirements of the appeal. This is why you need a qualified disability bad faith insurance attorney on your side.

The experienced disability bad faith insurance attorneys at Mehr, Fairbanks & Peterson, won’t let Northwestern Mutual Insurance Company push you around. We are well known by big nationwide disability insurance companies. They know when we take your case the games will have to stop. We will pursue your claim aggressively and fight to get you paid.

Despite Northwestern Mutual’s financial health, people with legitimate short- or long-term disability claims often receive a denial letter when they attempt to collect on their insurance policy. It seems that Northwestern claims examiners simply have too high a standard for determining what counts as a disability under its own policies.

Proving Your Disability Claim with Northwestern Mutual Insurance Company

Northwestern Mutual provides both group and individual disability benefits. They have their doctors and nurses who work with claims examiners to review your disability claim. They are trained to look for anything that may disqualify you from coverage so that Northwestern Mutual can avoid paying your claim. They will comb through your medical records looking for any notation made by your doctor that may justify denying your disability claim. Our skilled disability bad faith insurance attorneys know how to prove your claim and will fight back when your disability claim has been wrongfully denied.

  • Evaluated whether you are disabled under an “own occupation” policy or “any occupation” policy based on an incorrect job description
  • Interpreted your “own occupation” policy as an “any occupation” policy instead
