Boston – Phillips & Cohen LLP issued a press release on Oct. 23, 2008 stating a Boston jury found that Unum Group defrauded the United States by forcing its customers to submit false claims for disability benefits to the Social Security Administration (SSA), when Unum knew that they were not eligible for government benefits.

Unum, issued its own release in response stating, “A news release issued this morning by Washington law firm Phillips & Cohen LLP claiming victory in a trial against Unum regarding Social Security Claims is misleading and filled with inaccuracies. The jury actually sided with Unum on the majority of claims. The two claims that were decided in favor of the plaintiff resulted in a total award of less than $3,000.”
