West Virginia Court Denied Unum's Motion to Dismiss Complaints on Provident Life & Accident Insurance Co. and Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co

A West Virginia court denied Unum Group's motion to dismiss complaints that two of the company's subsidiaries failed to report unclaimed insurance policy proceeds meant to go to the state. In December, the company filed a motion to dismiss the complaints, as West Virginian lawmakers had passed a law earlier in 2016 that outlined insurers' duties to unclaimed benefits from West Virginia-issued life insurance policies, annuity contracts and retained asset accounts. The company disclosed the court's denial of its motion in a quarterly regulatory filing made July 28. The case is now proceeding through the discovery phase. Previously, the lawsuits were reinstated after having been dismissed in December 2013, when a circuit judged found that West Virginia law does not require insurance companies to search death files from the Social Security Administration or turn over life insurance benefits to the government until a claim has been submitted. The lawsuits were reinstated after an appellate court found that the West Virginia Uniform Unclaimed Property Act requires insurers to make reasonable efforts to determine whether those insured under its policies are still living. The Unum group units involved in the lawsuits are Provident Life & Accident Insurance Co. and Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Co.
