What to Do If Prudential Denies Your Application

Even if you have a policy with Prudential covering disability, this doesn’t mean that Prudential will automatically provide benefits when you submit a claim. In fact, Prudential only approves about a third of initial disability claims. There are some reasons for this, and the most common reason for a disability claim denial is “insufficient medical evidence.”

As such, if you don’t include comprehensive medical files and records documenting your treatments and the disability, or if you have an inadequately detailed doctor’s statement, there is a good chance that Prudential will deny your application. Prudential may also deny your benefits claim if your disability doesn’t meet the policy’s definitions or the disability was caused by alcohol or drugs.

Fortunately, there are some things you can do once you receive notice of a claim denial. First of all, it’s essential to protect your rights, and if your Prudential plan is with your employer, then you are lawfully eligible to receive a detailed explanation of the denial (this is an ERISA requirement). After receiving the denial, you can then take action to appeal, which often consists of supplementing your application with additional information and then giving it to Prudential for another review.

For the employer-provided insurance plan, you have levels of appeal that you may have to go through, including:

  1. Reconsideration by a state agency
  2. An administration hearing
  3. Reviews by an Appeals Council
  4. Federal review in court
