"If the insured has a disability for which benefits may be payable for at least 2 years, at least once every 6 months after the insured has given notice of claim, the insured must give the insurer notice that the disability has continued. The insured need not do this if legally incapacitated. The first 6 months after any filing of proof by the insured or any payment or denial of a claim by the insurer will not be counted in applying this provision.
