Fla. Man Says Unum Wrongly Denied His Disability Insurance Claim
By Jessica Tyner
Unum is one of the largest providers of long-term disability (LTD) coverage in the United States. According to a number of policy holders, Unum preys on their customers by giving them the run around, denying benefits with no foundation, stopping or lowering payments with no communication and basically illegally making the process impossible to follow.
“I found out first hand that Unum is the second worst insurance company in the world,” notes Jacksonville, Fla. Resident named Herman who was denied his LTD coverage. “I am still in shock from their bad faith practice and so are my doctors,” he adds.
There are many other Unum claim denial stories where a policyholder’s doctors have provided supporting documentation which Unum seemingly ignores. One of Unum’s practices reportedly includes a policy to only act on information provided by their own doctors -- many of whom have never even seen the patient.…

One of the latest alleged Unum victims is Joseph Everhart of South Carolina. A former Ohio resident, Everhart counted on The Paul Revere Life Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Unum, to provide his LTD policy.…

Fla. Man Seeks Back Unum Disability Insurance Benefits
By John Curran
A man says he has provided medical documentation that confirms he is unable to work, according to a Unum disability insurance lawsuit recently transferred to U.S. District Court in Florida.
The Unum lawsuit, which was filed by Tarpon Springs resident Michael DePauw, does not cite his specific injuries. Rather, it notes that he received a decision letter from company claim denial specialists indicating Unum would not authorize the payment of monthly benefits. By doing so, his disability insurance lawsuit lawyer alleges that the company is in breach of contract.
According to the Unum lawsuit, DePauw has submitted adequate information though medical documentation to demonstrate his condition and is seeking "past benefits due, future benefits due, interests … costs of insurance (and) incidental and consequential damages."…
