Eleventh Circuit finds Denial of Disability Benefits to be Arbitrary and Capricious
Sisung v. UNUM Life Ins. Co. of Am., 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 15028 (11th Cir. June 1, 2022) Review of benefit denials under an arbitrary and capricious standard often presents a significant hurdle to claimants. In Sisung, however, the Eleventh Circuit found Unum’s denial of disability benefits to be unreasonable, a significant victory for a disabled individual.
