UNUM, THE UK GOVERNMENT HEALTH ADVISER - THE TRUTH IS TOLD

"Regulatory authorities and courts have now established that Unum/Provident Corporation, the nation's largest disability insurance carrier, was engaged in a program of deliberate bad faith denial of meritorious claims in both ERISA and non-ERISA markets." - http://messageboard.spine-health.com/viewtopic.php?id=4270

UNUM - UK & US - FORMERLY UNUM PROVIDENT EXPOSED - EMPLOYERS YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

This blog exists to make corporate companies and individuals aware of tactics deployed by UNUM and their agents to systematically cancel claims made against their Long Term Disability Plan.

The images you see are real and shocking. Let them serve as a warning to companies, individuals, managers interesting in employing the services of UNUM in the UK or US for payment protection policies.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

"UNUMPROVIDENT IS AN OUTLAW COMPANY"

"UNUMPROVIDENT IS AN OUTLAW COMPANY"

Introduction to the UNUM Long Term Disability Scheme

"We can protect your income and help to preserve the lifestyle of you and your dependants."

This is the UNUM sales pitch which leads people to believe the payments they make will protect them financially if their physical/mental health takes a turn for the worst. How wrong one can be.

Please read my story carefully and protect yourself from a future of misery, physical/mental suffering and financial hardship. I will be naming and shaming Louise Vaughan, Stephen Brown, Stuart Lewis, Lizz Keirnan and Christine Taylor. These people employed all kinds of tactics in an attempt to refuse my claim - including advising me to take steps which would effectively make my claim null and void. Also they employed a private detective to invade the privacy of my family and I. Including camping outside my parent's house for 3 days, reporting the movements of my family, taking pictures, video and most disturbingly breaking into my car to read my private letters.
