Jefferson Pilot is Now Lincoln Financial Group
Although most people are familiar with the name Jefferson Pilot, the company was acquired by Lincoln Financial Group in 2006. Lincoln National has become a powerhouse insurance corporation with a network of affiliate companies, including Lincoln National Life Insurance Company and Lincoln Life & Annuity Company of New York.
Jefferson Pilot was a Fortune 500 company with headquarters in Greensboro, North Carolina. The company began when two companies merged in 1968: Jefferson Standard Insurance (established 1907) and Pilot Life Insurance (established 1903).
Naturally, many disability policies still exist under the name of Jefferson Pilot. As long as premiums are paid, these policies are valid contracts.
If you have been denied disability benefits under an older Jefferson Pilot or Jefferson Standard Insurance policy, we can help. The company we will deal with for your current Jefferson Standard or Jefferson Pilot disability claim denial is Lincoln Financial Group.
Lawyers Representing Jefferson Pilot Disability Claim Denials
Cases against Jefferson Pilot require a fully developed appeal that will stand up to Jefferson Pilot’s (Lincoln Financial) internal appeal process. Often these policies require two levels of administrative appeal with very strict time limitations.
We approach the appeal in a way that proves your claim denial is unjust. Our attorneys rebut the letter of denial, going point by point, to legally and factually demonstrate that you are disabled from working and earning a living, as defined in the policy. We work diligently to compel the insurer to overturn their decision.
We investigate and build each Jefferson Pilot disability claim appeal we take on as though we are planning to engage in full litigation. It is this strength of our practice by which we are often able to negotiate and settle cases to our client’s satisfaction prior to litigation. Should litigation occur, we are 100% ready.
