UnumProvident Adds Online Tools for Filings

UnumProvident has expanded its suite of online tools that help employers and employees file a disability insurance claim.

Employers can now access a step-by-step online guide that includes sample claims forms, administration guides, and information specific to maternity or long term disability claims.

Additionally, once the claim has been processed, individuals can
conveniently access a new online claim status service. This online service lets claimants check the status of claims payments and submit key dates related to current claims, such as their last day at work or anticipated return-to-work target.

In addition, if an employee is on maternity leave, she can enter the baby’s delivery date online. To date, UnumProvident has reportedly helped more than 50,000 claimants access information about their claim through the online service.

To access the Online Claims Status Service, visit http://www.unumprovident.com and click on the homepage link “About Your Claim.” Employers can visit http://www.unumprovident.com/employers for more information.
