I have a private disability policy and my insurance company insists that I do not qualify for full benefits because my income has not been the amount I stated when I applied for the policy. Can I contest this?


The wording of the policy must be carefully reviewed to determine whether your pre-disability income at the onset of total disability can be considered in determining the amount of your disability benefits. In some cases, the policy wording would allow the insurance company to pay a lesser amount, but in many other policies, the amount of coverage purchased is the amount that is supposed to be paid.
