Our attorneys respond to most comments posted by our visitors.

American United Life Insurance Company sells disability insurance and is an affiliated company of OneAmerica Financial Partners, Inc. American United is a multi-billion dollar insurance company that claims to have been selling insurance since 1877. American United sells and underwrites short term and long term group disability insurance policies through an agreement they have with Illinois Mutual Insurance Company and Principal Life Insurance Company. A claimant with a group disability policy issued by American United Life Insurance needs to take caution as it is likely the disability policy is governed by ERISA. The company is based in Indianapolis, Indiana. In 2003, American United significantly increased their disability insurance portfolio by purchasing the group life and disability business from The Union Central Life Insurance Company. In past claims that we have seen from American United, they usually use a third party administrator to evaluate the disability insurance claim, which means that American United may not be making the final decision to approve or deny disability benefits. American United has assets under management in excess of 14 billion dollars.

Disability Attorneys Dell & Schaefer have provided and offer the following legal services for disability claimants that have a long-term disability insurance policy or disability income policy purchased from American United Life Insurance:

  • Kevin, this sounds as though it would be a Social Security Disability claim. I suggest you contact an SSDI attorney.

  • Rebecca, under the ERISA laws, insurance companies I believe have 105 days to provide an answer on your application. I believe its 45 days and they can take two extensions of 30 days each. However, this time period can be tolled if there are outstanding requests. Please remember its ultimately your duty to provide the “Proof” of your claim. You may want to get all your medical documentation together and send it in to the insurance company yourself so you can 100% without question know what information was sent and went it was received. If you rely upon your doctors to send the info in, the insurance companies might play games and say they never received it.

    If you would like to discuss your claim or potential representation, please do not hesitate to contact me.

  • I have been out on leave from work since dec 2017 because my job said that it wasn’t safe for me to work. I have type 1 diabetes and have had constant low blood sugars while at work. The disability company that has been taking money from my paychecks, said that I wasn’t eligible once I filed a claim.

  • Hello Sirs

    I have American United Life. I have a phlethoria of injuries and too many doctors to count. I have CTcscans, MRI’s, body scan, etc…. However, AUL stopped paying January 2016 with no good reason. The attorney I had wants to know if Inwant to file a federal lawsuit. But, he was so incompetent, I had rather have you who I know can win. This attorney tells me what I cannot do and what the insurance company can reading from the insurance’s letter, not the policy. I know that policy backwards and forward, and I know I am due much back pay and continuing disibility payments including the 25% extra. Please consider my case. I was approved for SSD in five months in 2013. I was approved for ST and LT with AUL, but what I feel their feeling of attorney weakness, AUL just stopped paying. I have even worse conditions now. Please help me, no one else has the foresight or intelligence to take this company on. Both my husband and I are disabled and I paid fully for this policy for almost two decades. The state has declared me totally and permanently disabled, but the insurance I paid for to protect me will not. Please consider my request.
