How Do We Help Claimants Get A Unum Lump Sum Settlement?
There are a couple of different ways in which we've been involved in helping people receive a lump sum buyout from UNUM. In most cases, we approach our contacts at UNUM to discuss whether or not UNUM is interested in engaging in a buyout. Our lawyers have specific contacts at Unum that only handle the buyout of a Unum long term disability policy. In some rare situations, UNUM will reach out to a disability claimant and offer them some sort of buyout. Never accept a Unum settlement offer without speaking with a lawyer first. There is a possibility that your offer is either too low or calculated incorrectly. There are numerous factors involved in the calculation of a Unum buyout offer, such as mortality rating (life expectancy), interest rates, your current age, the language in your policy(s), your medical conditions, and the actuarial guidelines used by Unum. Our clients get the benefit of the working relationship we have established with Unum in order to get reasonable buyout offers.
