Resources state it is not surprising that long-term disability coverage has declined by six percent from 2009 to 2013 given that Unum, one of the top disability insurers in the United States and formerly known as Paul Revere, Provident, and Unum Provident, continues to wrongfully deny long-term disability benefits.

Common Unum Denial Strategies

According to sources, Unum utilizes a wide range of denial tactics, including the following:

  • Altering policies after claims are filed (without knowledge of policyholders and without authorization)
  • Obtaining opinions from unqualified experts and inadequately investigating claims
  • Misreading medical records, often by Unum’s independent examiners
  • Demanding repeated requests for medical examiners or denying claims without medical examinations
  • Declining to acknowledge certain disability such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and mental disorders
  • Arguing the claim is a pre-existing medical condition
  • Denying a claim with the intent to wear the claimant down to a decreased settlement
  • Only partially paying a claim for total disability
