Lincoln Financial Long-Term Disability Complaints
Even loyal, long-term policyholders who have been paying regular premiums for years can fall victim to Lincoln disability insurance denials.
Insurance companies hold a legal duty to their policyholders to act in good faith and fair dealing. If your insurance company has failed to uphold this responsibility, you may be able to sue on a bad faith claim.
Unfair long-term disability insurance claim denial is one way in which Lincoln Financial may not have fulfilled its duty as an insurer and has resulted in countless bad faith lawsuits throughout the nation.
If you become ill or injured and are unable to work, you may need to depend on your long-term disability insurance for your financial security.
Facing a denial of these benefits could result in the:
- Denial of your health care
- Immediate loss of your regular income
- Loss of your savings
- Loss or foreclosure of your home
These losses can devastate a person’s finances, but a denial is not necessarily final. Our Lincoln Financial long-term disability lawyers may be able to help you appeal — and/or file a lawsuit — to secure the benefits you need and deserve.

Lincoln Financial Lawsuit FAQs
Why was my Lincoln Financial long-term disability denied?
If you have been denied your long-term disability benefits, Lincoln Financial may have claimed:
- You failed to disclose a pre-existing health condition
- Your medical examinations were insufficient or inadequate
- There were problems with your paperwork or documentation
- Your medical condition is not a “covered” disability
- Your procedure was elective, not medically necessary
These reasons may or may not be legitimate, as bad faith denials are unfortunately quite common by insurance providers.
