According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on June 18, 2013, during the course of her employment, plaintiff became entitled to benefits under the terms and conditions of the defendants' long-term disability plan. She alleges she was receiving less than what was based on a reasonable interpretation of UNUM’s policy terms and circumstances of her employment history, as a result, plaintiff was damaged for loss of full disability benefits.
