The 2009 Economy and UNUM’s Payment of Long Term Disability Benefits | Florida Insurance Disability Lawyer
At Cavey & Barrett we are seeing a “slow pace strategy” and out right denial of valid claims by long-term disability carriers such as UNUM. This delay or denial is for the benefit of long term disability carrier. This aggressive claims handling has resulted in increased profits for UNUM. According to a UNUM Group Q1 2009 Earnings Call transript on May 4, 2009 “group disability earnings were 44% higher driven by strong risk results”… a fancy way of saying claims delay and denial .
With stock prices down and a lack of investment income earnings, disability insurance companies are taking longer to determine disability claims and to pay long-term disability benefits.
