Mergers and acquisitions of insurance companies is a fairly common practice. In 2006 Jefferson-Pilot Corporation was purchased by the Lincoln Financial Group. For detailed information about the handling of Jefferson Pilot disability claims we suggest you visit our page discussing Lincoln Financial Group. All Jefferson Pilot policies are now administered and disability benefits are paid by Lincoln.
Throughout the years our law firm has represented numerous doctors, dentists, financial professionals and other business owners that had purchased Jefferson Pilot disability policies.
Despite the merger between Jefferson and Lincoln, the policies remain valid and in-force as long as premiums continue to be paid.
Compared to most of the other disability insurance companies Jefferson Pilot has been reasonable in their evaluation of disability claims. The majority of appeals we have filed on behalf of our clients have resulted in the reinstatement of benefits without the need to file a lawsuit.
