UNUM Likes To Hide Its Sins

A federal court in Kansas held that UNUM was arbitrary and capricious to deny benefits based on a policy exclusion that the claimant's ("Kathy") fibromyalgia was a self-reported condition. Last week the court agreed to vacate the record of its decision against UNUM that it had improperly discontinued Kathy's long-term disability benefits in violation of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA). The record of the decision was vacated because UNUM made it a condition of settling with Kathy in lieu of continuing its appeal.
