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.
