MetLife Disability Insurance Company

MetLife has more than 50,000 employees, revenues in excess of $40 billion dollars and is one of the top three largest group long term disability insurance companies in the world. MetLife is no stranger when it comes to denying and defending their decisions in court.

In this episode disability insurance attorneys Gregory Dell, Stephen Jessup and Cesar Gavidia of Attorneys Dell & Schaefer discuss MetLife Disability Insurance Company and their handling of long term disability insurance claims.

You will learn about several different disability cases in which MetLife denied long term disability benefits and the court reversed MetLife’s denial. The case of most interest involves a MetLife claimant that had his disability benefits denied after undergoing three back surgeries and receiving payment from MetLife for approximately 10 years.

If you have had any kind of experience with MetLife that you would like to share with the thousands of disability claimants that visit our website each month, we encourage you to post your comments about your experience.

  • MetLife is horrible! Unfortunately, the insurance companies are out to get paid from the consumers and never yield when someone is really hurt. Hard to believe that an STD claim could be denied for someone in Intensive care. Wow! Now, someone should just sue for that and see how many millions MetLife has to pay out as opposed to bringing in the revenue!

Questions About Hiring Us

Do you work in my state?

Yes. We are a national disability insurance law firm that is available to represent you regardless of where you live in the United States. We have partner lawyers in every state and we have filed lawsuits in most federal courts nationwide. Our disability lawyers represent disability claimants at all stages of a claim for disability insurance benefits. There is nothing that our lawyers have not seen in the disability insurance world.

What are your fees?

Since we represent disability insurance claimants at different stages of a disability insurance claim we offer a variety of different fee options. We understand that claimants living on disability insurance benefits have a limited source of income; therefore we always try to work with the claimant to make our attorney fees as affordable as possible.

The three available fee options are a contingency fee agreement (no attorney fee or cost unless we make a recovery), hourly fee or fixed flat rate.

In every case we provide each client with a written fee agreement detailing the terms and conditions. We always offer a free initial phone consultation and we appreciate the opportunity to work with you in obtaining payment of your disability insurance benefits.

Do I have to come to your office to work with your law firm?

No. For purposes of efficiency and to reduce expenses for our clients we have found that 99% of our clients prefer to communicate via telephone, e-mail, fax, GoToMeeting.com sessions, or Skype. If you prefer an initial in-person meeting please let us know. A disability company will never require you to come to their office and similarly we are set up so that we handle your entire claim without the need for you to come to our office.

How can I contact you?

When you call us during normal business hours you will immediately speak with a disability attorney. We can be reached at 800-682-8331 or by email. Lawyer and staff must return all client calls same day. Client emails are usually replied to within the same business day and seem to be the preferred and most efficient method of communication for most clients.

Dell & Schaefer Client Reviews   *****

Joshua C.

I worked with Mr. Dell in a lump sum buyout of my long term disability policy with a major national carrier. I knew I would need a professional for this and when I emailed Mr. Dell about information, he promptly set up a time to chat with me and it all went from there. He was able to negotiate with the insurance company to obtain a very attractive buyout offer, which I took.

Mr. Dell never delayed more than an hour in answering my emails and calls. In fact, usually I heard something from him or his associate within minutes. I really appreciated this, given that all of this is done without actually meeting in person. I highly recommend getting help if you are considering a lump sum buyout of your policy. And after my experience working with this firm, you will feel most secure that you’re getting the best deal possible. Thanks Greg and all you guys there that were so helpful.
