Can An Insurance Company Request Confidential Information From My Employer?

Can an insurance company request my employee performance evaluations or any other confidential information from my employer when I submit a claim for disability benefits?

Long Term Disability - Question 36
Requesting such information as part of the initial application process would be unusual, and in most cases should not be considered relevant. Such information may be requested if LTD has been denied and the matter proceeds to litigation and this information may be producible if it is relevant. If such a request is made, you should consider discussing your specific concerns with a lawyer to determine whether the request is reasonable in your particular circumstances.
