Advocacy Case Studies

It is an exciting area of my business that became a niche developed years ago by taking care of life insurance or disability and medical problems. People don’t know there is even a financial gain to be uncovered until I am working on something else.

Working on a Social Security disability case, when I read the exit interview paperwork from his previous employer and found benefits he was eligible for, he couldn’t afford it a life insurance benefit. I asked for the group life insurance contract to make sure it had a waiver premium benefit. We reinstated the life insurance 11 months after termination, and the death benefit was $130,000. Additionally, the policy read that he had accelerated benefits which entitled him to 75% of the death benefit upfront.

Another case with a client who had private disability insurance was retired and continuing to pay for it. I said it wouldn’t pay if you quit, and I got the company to retroactively pay him back for two years, where the premium was about $26,000.

Another referral had three different disability policies and got the insurance carrier to go back a year and a half on all three approaches for waiver premium. She shaved $18,500.

Every situation is different, but I will do my best to find a resolution to whatever challenge you may be facing.
