|Brief for Secretary of Labor as Amicus Curiae Supporting Defendant-Appellee, Metropolitan Life Insurance Company|
U.S. Department of Labor [DOL]
Sept. 29, 2010
Excerpt: The question presented in this case concerns whether, in light of the decision in Kennedy v. DuPont, 129 S. Ct. 865 (2009), holding that plan administrators must distribute benefits to beneficiaries in accordance with plan documents, ERISA allows a plan administrator to disregard a validly-executed beneficiary designation because the plan lacks a formal procedure through which a designated beneficiary can refuse benefits.
