Do I need to communicate with my insurance company when applying for short term or long term disability benefits? by Patricia Santucci
Yes. The insurance policy gives the insurance company the right to ask you for information. If you refuse to or fail to communicate with your insurance company, your application may not be approved and you might not receive your benefits, regardless of the severity of your disability. If you believe that the insurance company is being unreasonable in its requests and questions, you may ask a lawyer for assistance. You must answer all questions honestly. (10)
