Most Lincoln Financial Group Disability Denials Require The Filing Of An ERISA Appeal
“The medical documentation in your file does not support disability as defined by the policy”. This is, unfortunately, a sentence that thousands of Lincoln Financial claimants have been forced to deal with.

It is essential to submit as much additional medical and vocational support as possible with your appeal.
Our lawyers submit hundreds of appeals each year and we encourage you to discuss your Appeal options with us. You only get once chance to submit a great Appeal and you must be very methodical in the manner in which your Appeal is submitted.
