Denied Disability Claims
Many Americans have faithfully had money deducted from their paychecks to pay for disability insurance. They rely on this insurance to cover them in the event that they become disabled and cannot work, however, many people might be in for a rude awakening if they hold an insurance policy through Unum Provident.
Unum Provident is the largest disability insurance company, providing disability insurance for more than 17 million Americans. Unfortunately, for their policyholders, Unum has denied legitimate disability claims from seriously ill customers. This is a corporate strategy designed for one purpose – to boost profits.
A great number of current and former employees for Unum have come forth to talk to media and to lawyers about the tragic situation that occurs on a regular basis within the walls of the Unum claims department.
Stories like this one are a regular occurrence for policyholders of Unum Provident disability insurance.
