CHICAGO — A woman has filed a class action lawsuit against United Insurance Company of America and its subsidiary, Kemper Corporation, for alleged breach of contract.
Sarah Armstrong filed the complaint on June 22 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants failed to pay her life insurance benefits after her father died.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges the failure to pay is the result of a decades-long practice at the company, which has resulted in underpayment of benefits to potentially thousands of other policyholders.
The plaintiff seeks all benefits due, including unpaid benefits, interest, court costs and any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Harvey J. Barnett, Eamon P. Kelly and Nathan A. Shev of Sperling & Slater P.C. in Chicago.
