Appeal of Voya Financial / ING / ReliaStar Denial Letter
If you have an individual policy or are a government employee and your Reliastar long term disability claim has been denied or cut-off, you may not have to file an administrative appeal with the insurance company to enforce your rights. You should consult with an experienced disability attorney to determine your legal rights.
If you have a group plan ReliaStar Life Insurance Company disability policy, your policy is likely governed by ERISA. ERISA does have strict appeal procedures and deadlines.

Under some policies, you may have a second, voluntary appeal.
