After almost a year of legal back & forth - CIGNA LTD finally started paying me! Then the games began...
As of 2012 (I was approved in 1995) I have received ONE C.O.L.A. (Cost of Living Adjustment) One. If you check the SSA.gov site there are small increases every year. I am been writing and asking them why no increases. With no response! Although each & every time they put my case on review.
A month ago they send me a letter saying they overpaid me by $5K (huh???) and are considering it a "wash" and adjusting my payment. It's not back to where it was in 1998, which if they were doing the simple increases every year like they should have - would be IMPOSSIBLE.
I have complained to them, my old employer and the State Insurance Dept. They have to be the most disorganized, messed up and poorly managed LTD company. Or it's on purpose. How long do you think it will take for them to put me on 'review' for questioning their creative accounting?
