Northwestern Mutual Deny Your Disability Claim?
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.

With more than $802 million in profits during 2013, Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. ranks 110 on the Fortune 500 list. 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.
