Customers posted the following comments about Unum on the website:
- "Unum will do everything in their power to deny your benefits. They will engage you in months and months of paper work, doctors reports which they will say they never received or are not satisfactory. It is impossible to get through their hierarchy to reach a supervisor. They are listed as one of the largest insurers in the US. Yet, they [have] been successfully litigation against them and a class action suit in the millions. They have given me nothing but heart ache, while I am already diagnosed with 3 serious and documented medical problems. "
- "I got denied for short term without much explanation. They have dragged out the appeal process by saying they never received information. They have also denied two other people that work with me. They are quick to take your money but not give it back!!!"
- "They will do anything they can not to pay your claim."
