Need Legal Guidance? Call Our Insurance Lawyers!
When you are unable to work and provide for yourself and your family, it can be challenging to maintain and manage your finances. That is why many people opt to apply for disability insurance. However, it is not always straightforward to qualify for this type of coverage or claim benefits.
MetLife, Inc. is listed among the top 10 disability policy underwriters in the 2014 Annual Report on the Insurance Industry provided by the U.S. Treasury Department. As a major player in disability insurance, they have some of the highest gross sales among American insurance companies providing disability insurance coverage. Founded in 1863, MetLife is one of the oldest life insurance providers in the United States. The business started as a casualty insurance provider for Civil War soldiers but evolved into a life insurance provider for industrial workers.
MetLife's growth significantly increased, and by the first decade of the 20th century, they were one of the largest insurance providers in North America, a distinction that they still hold to this day. In 2010, MetLife spread its reach internationally when it bought the American Life Insurance Company from Americal International Group (AIG) for $16 billion. This acquisition increased MetLife's holdings to 90 million accounts in 50 different countries. MetLife's significant growth indicates that it will continue to be a major player in the insurance industry for years to come.

MetLife Disability Insurance FAQ
How are delays linked to bad faith practices by disability insurance companies like MetLife?
If you’re disabled, you’re relying on the financial support that your disability insurance should provide. Delays in reviewing, approving, and paying your claim may be an indication that the insurance company is acting in bad faith. Delaying your claim can make you desperate, willing to accept lower than what your policy should pay. It can leave you discouraged and could even make you give up altogether. If MetLife or another insurance company is taking a long time to respond to your calls, is delaying your payments, or is in any way acting unethically in regard to your disability claim, don’t wait to involve a lawyer. It’s time to put pressure on the insurance company so you get the money you need.
What can I do if MetLife is unfairly handling my disability claim?
If you suspect that MetLife is not treating you fairly, you should talk to an attorney. Get your insurance policy information together and any other documents related to your disability claim, and schedule a free consultation with one of our experienced professionals at Arnold & Itkin. We can talk to you about what you’ve experienced and can go over your claim and policy to see whether your suspicions are correct. If you’re being victimized by unethical or illegal practices by MetLife or any party, we can take the appropriate steps to seek the full and fair value of your claim, plus additional damages.
What does my MetLife disability insurance cover?
What your MetLife disability insurance covers will depend on your specific policy. It may cover short term or long term disability, replacing a portion of your income while you’re injured (and for an extended period of time if you have long term disability insurance). By reviewing your policy, our team can determine what amount of benefits you should be receiving.
