Unum Disability Claim Denials
CALIFORNIA INSURANCE LAW FIRM GIANELLI & MORRIS WILL FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO DISABILITY BENEFITS
Unum Group is one of the largest and most high-profile disability insurance companies in the country. It also has a reputation as being one of the most unscrupulous insurance providers when it comes to disability claims. Going back at least two decades, Unum has been accused of claim-cutting. Former Unum employees have come forward to say that they were told to deny meritorious claims simply to avoid a payout, despite the policyholder having every right to coverage. If you have an Unum insurance policy and you are wrongfully denied the disability benefits to which you are entitled, you have the right to fight back.

Who is Unum?
Unum Group is one of the largest insurance companies in the country. They provide both private individual disability insurance (IDI) and Group (ERISA) LTD long-term disability insurance policies, and they own many other insurance providers across the country that may still operate under different names. Companies under their umbrella include Colonial, First Unum, Paul Revere, Provident, Fairwind, and Northwind, among others. You might not even know that you have an Unum insurance policy or a disability policy administered by Unum.
Unum has faced legal challenges as a result of its wrongful claim denials and bad faith tactics since at least the early 2000s. They have employed a variety of bad faith maneuvers over the years, including using in-house or biased medical staff to support the denial of claims, hiring private investigators and using inappropriate surveillance to monitor claimants, and denied many claims based on an intentional misreading of their own policies.
