Must Disability Claim Administrators Now Obtain the SSDI File in the 11th Circuit?
Robinson + Cole LLP Link to more items from this source
Jan. 20, 2014
"While it is not particularly novel to hold that an SSDI award must be considered -- most circuits require disability claim administrators to consider an SSDI award, or at least to explain why it is not relevant -- the Eleventh Circuit seems to have taken the requirement a step further, requiring the administrator to seek out the evidence the SSDI award was based on, and perhaps even delay an adverse decision until the SSDI process is completed." [Melech v. Life Insurance Co. of N. America, No. 12-14999 (11th Cir. Jan. 6, 2014)]
