VIDEO: Should I Turn Over Documents to the Insurance Company?
If you are working with your insurance company to get the long term disability insurance benefits to which you are entitled, you may be unsure of how to go about things. As a result you may believe you need to turn over all of the documentation they request. This is not always necessary and caution should be taken before doing so.
While it is possible an insurance company could seek tax returns, psychotherapist’s notes or employment history, it is not always in your best interest to provide access to those records. To protect your rights and privacy, before signing an open authorization, it is advisable to consult with a lawyer who has a thorough understanding of this area of law.
