We have paid for disability insurance for over 20 years. My husband had his knees replaced in 2005. His employer accomodated him with light duty work and he still retained his title and pay. This past March the company did not have any light duty work available and thus he went onto STD. After 90 we applied for our Thrivent supplemental insurance to kick in. NOW they are denying a claim because he didn't file a claim in 2005 and he can still due light duty work.
For the record, this past june was the first time he was out of work longer than 90 days. He also was still in his former position not a lower salary desk job.
I always thought Thrivent was a great company. However, sine they are giving us a hard time and refuse to provide coverage. I suggest that people find another company.
