“We are so grateful to have wonderful UP looking out for us and putting together amazing amounts of information to help us understand 'the process' and cope with the trials and tribulations!"
A central part of United Policyholders' mission is to educate and
unite insureds with current information on insurance issues. Consistent
with that mission, United Policyholders serves as a clearinghouse for
documents relating to disability insurance policies. UP launched this
service after being swamped with requests for information by disabled
policyholders and their advocates. ISP documents are available to policyholders, policyholder advocates and employees of governmental agencies only.
These documents are relevant to the majority of disability
policyholders in the United States because most people who buy
disability insurance are insured by one company comprised of former
merged competitors UNUM, Provident Accident and Life, and Paul Revere.
The documents indicate a business strategy to boost profits by unfairly
denying disability claims. Many thousands of disabled insureds
throughout the United States appear to have been the victims of this
